HADDAM, CT (WFSB) -- Three people were hurt when a porch at a home in Haddam collapsed on Monday, state police said.

Troopers told Channel 3 they responded to reports of people injured after the porch collapsed on Little Meadow Road around 8:10 p.m.

Troopers said five people were standing on it when it gave way.

The Haddam Volunteer Fire Company reported that it found three patients near the area of the collapse who were all alert. A woman and her toddler son also fell from the deck, but were not hurt.

The three people who were hurt were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, troopers said. However, firefighters said a man and a woman had to be transported to Hartford Hospital. The third patient, a man, was brought to Middlesex Hospital.

Firefighters described the deck as being located on the front of a three-story gable-roofed home. They said a wooden support beam had collapsed and the deck broke free from the home's third story.

Crews from East Haddam, Haddam ambulance and Hunters Ambulance also helped care for the patients.
