SAN DIEGO — A San Diego building where a gym platform collapsed, injuring dozens of children, had numerous safety violations.

That’s according to a city report issued Thursday.

The report says a Barrio Logan warehouse that housed the gym and other small businesses lacked fire sprinklers or sufficient exits, and walls, stairs, partitions, restrooms, locker rooms and offices were built without inspections or required city permits.

City inspectors also found a roof-supporting column was badly damaged.

A wooden platform and stairwell at the Vault PK parkour gym fell on Saturday night. Twenty-one children and two adults were treated for minor to moderate injuries.

The gym and other businesses leased rooms in the warehouse, which is owned by the regional Metropolitan Transit System. A spokesman says those businesses are being evicted.
