The children were making a snowman on a third floor porch when it suddenly fell apart, dropped on top of the second floor porch and then to the ground.

The four kids were taken to Boston Medical Center, where they were treated for bumps and bruises and released.

The building inspector is looking into what caused the collapse.

It happened at the same home where a 36-year-old man was shot and killed on November 29.
