Twenty-two people were injured, mostly with broken bones and bruises, after part of the floor of a nightclub on Spain’s holiday island of Tenerife collapsed early on Sunday, causing them to plunge into the basement, local officials said.

Emergency services rushed to the nightclub in Adeje in southwestern Tenerife at about 2:30 a.m. after receiving reports that roughly four square meters (43 square feet) of its floor had collapsed, the regional government of Spain’s Canary Islands said in a statement.
