Earlier today, an upper school picture shoot went terribly awry when the grating covering a cellar window by Brooklyn private girls school Shaarei Torah collapsed, causing several girls to fall down a 15 foot shaft, and sustain personal injuries including possible fractures. Volunteer EMS organization Hatzolah, as well as NYPD and Fire Department immediately responded to the accident scene, which was located at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Church Avenue, and took the injured students to several different local area hospitals including Methodist Hospital, Maimonides Medical Center and Lutheran Hospital.
