Short Hills Mall Parking Deck Collapses

No injuries reported in early morning incident

Part of the Mall at Short Hills parking lot where snow had been piled collapsed early Friday morning. 

A section of some 15 parking spots in one corner of the lot outside Bloomingdale’s near John F. Kennedy Parkway crumbled in the overnight hours at the Millburn mall, according to a news report.

No one was injured and no property—other than mall infrastructure—was damaged.

Firefighters, building inspectors and mall engineers responded to the scene after the collapse was reported at approximately 5:10 a.m. Friday morning. The section of the lot was closed off to shoppers following the incident. 

Officials with the mall suggest that rain and snow likely “played a factor” in the collapse, but the exact cause of the collapse was still unclear.

Sounds more like the work of a demon.
