Stairway Collapse Accidents

There are far more stairway collapse accidents than people realize. There is an excellent, out of print book called, The Stairway,  that is excellent in regard to building standards for stairways and ways that stairway falls occur.

There are also many videos of stairway collapses that show just how common these occur.

Here are just a few of them.
