The Sheriff's Office said six victims were taken to Destin Emergency Care and five were taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

DESTIN — Following the collapsed balcony at Sandpiper Cove on Wednesday, General Manager Jack Scelsi said the condominium complex will undergo an inspection from building professionals to help prevent any further accidents.

"Our thoughts are with those that were injured," Scelsi said Thursday. "We believe this was an isolated incident ... but we'll have building professionals come out to confirm that belief and help us identify any issues."

The incident was certainly a shock for Sandpiper Cove residents, as it was for the 11 snowbirds who were injured after celebrating a friend's 82nd birthday at Villa 11.

Nancy Hewitt of Ontario said her and her husband Paul were returning to their condo as emergency crews were on the scene.

"You hear ambulances so often you don't always pay attention, but then they were close to us," she said.

The Hewitts, both members of the Destin Snowbird Club, walked around the corner from their condo to see what the commotion was all about. Nancy said she remembers seeing a lot of ambulances and Okaloosa County sheriff's deputies' patrol cars. One woman was on the ground being treated by EMS.

According to the call history record from the Sheriff's Office, the 911 call came in at 4:41 p.m. Initial reports from OCSO said the injured people were from Kentucky and Indiana, but Nancy said at least one couple was from Ontario.

An OCSO report said the victims were 74-year-old Richard Stommel; 76-year-old Joyce Fumi; 82-year-old James Kleeman; 78-year-old Mary Kleeman; 81-year-old Donald Mascia; 74-year-old Allen Sherwood; 71-year-old Ruby Stommell; 82-year-old Gladys Wenzlaff; 90-year-old Walter Wenzlaff; 70-year-old Robert Bernard; and 80-year-old Ramona Werner.

James Kleeman has a birthdate of March 1.

Deputies helped keep the road clear for ambulances while Destin firefighters and EMS crews tended to the victims. Sandpiper Cove managers also were at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office said six victims were taken to Destin Emergency Care and five were taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

According to the report, a few chairs from the balcony fell into a nearby retention pond. A puddle of blood about the size of a Frisbee also was discovered where one victim was on the ground. Several drops of blood were scattered around the lower deck area.

Destin Snowbird Club President Dean Harper sent out an email to members Friday morning to offer help. Harper said he believed at least three of the victims were club members.
