People injured in Abbotsford church floor collapse taking legal action

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — Two people injured when a floor collapsed at a church in Abbotsford are taking legal action against the city and the operators of the church.

Elwin and Julia Witzke of Surrey were hurt when the dance floor at the Central Heights church gave way during a Christian rock concert on April 25.

In a writ filed in B.C. Supreme Court, they say the Mennonite church and four other defendants were negligent.

Seventy people crashed through the floor and 44 were reportedly injured during a concert by the band Starfield.

A class-action lawsuit filed shortly after the collapse is also making its way through the courts.

No statements of defence have been filed and the allegations are unproven in court.
