NEW YORK (AP) – Authorities say a section of the facade inside an underpass of the Brooklyn Bridge has collapsed, injuring five people.

It happened just before 8 p.m. Wednesday in Brooklyn during a passing thunder shower.

A fire department spokesman says the collapse involved a roughly 25-foot wide section of the facade.

All of the injuries were minor. It wasn’t immediately known who was hurt.

Department of Buildings inspectors are investigating.

There is no word on what caused the collapse.
