People on a dock at a restaurant in South Carolina were suddenly plunged into the water when the dock collapsed. 20 people attending a birthday party Saturday night, needed to be rescued from the waters of a tidal creek. 3 were sent to the hospital.

Coincidentally, the name of the restaurant is The Wreck of the Richard & Charlene.

A diver was called in to make sure everyone was rescued from the water.

Taylor Grooms told WCSC-TV they were lining the dock for a photograph when "all of the sudden we heard a loud crack."
