FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -

Multiple ambulances were called to an apartment complex in Florence when a stairway banister collapsed and injured four people.

According to the Boone County Sheriff's Office, two people fell off of the banister of a stairwell at the Woodspring apartment complex on Mt. Zion Rd. and hit two people who were standing below.

"I kinda expected it really because it was loose and people that would come over would always comment like, oh my gosh, I don't even want to walk up these steps because the railing is really loose and the steps are crooked," said a neighbor who didn't want to be identified.

Florence, Erlanger, Union and Walton Fire Departments all responded to the scene. All four people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
