Father, son injured in stair collapse

Emergency officials say a father and son suffered minor injuries when the front stairs of their Bainbridge Avenue building collapsed beneath them.

The father and son were buried in rubble at 2734 Bainbridge Ave. until emergency workers dug them out and rushed them to the hospital.

The stair collapse also caused an inconvenience for other residents who must now climb five flights of stairs in an adjacent building to cross a roof and enter 2734 Bainbridge Ave.
