Two days after a Soddy Daisy restaurant’s deck collapsed, sending eleven people to local hospitals, we’re learning the deck was installed without the proper permits. That’s according to the Hamilton County attorney.

Two were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but a spokesperson for Erlanger says that they are improving.

The Hamilton County attorney’s office tells us that the deck was not built with a permit issued by the county, and it was a non-permitted modification to the structure.

The restaurant, which is closed on Mondays, is allowed to operate as long as customers are served inside only.

Around 4 o’clock Saturday afternoon emergency crews responded to Zois Restaurant at Harbor Lights Marina.

Forty people fell from the deck when it collapsed during a birthday party.

Zois reopened for business the day after the accident.

The Hamilton County attorney’s office says they contacted the operators of the restaurant and told them not to allow patrons to use the remaining portion of the deck left outside.
