(NBC MIAMI) -- Twenty-four people were hurt, three of them in critical condition, after the deck of Shuckers Bar & Grill collapsed in North Bay Village Thursday night, authorities said.

The people were sent tumbling into the water of Biscayne Bay. One man said the water covered his head. He said his first instinct was to save himself and then others.

Most rescue vehicles have left at this point, but Miami-Dade Fire Rescue divers are still on the scene.

Miami Beach Police are assisting after the deck of the restaurant collapsed at 1819 79th Street Causeway, spokeswoman Det. Vivian Hernandez said.

Shuckers is a popular local hangout by Biscayne Bay in North Bay Village. Part of the establishment is on land.
