The stage collapse was as unexpected as it was lethal.
“The wind just picked up and the stage just caught and the roof just caught and it went up like a sail and then it crashed forward into the people standing in the front,” said a reporter for WANE-TV in Indiana.
“There were people trapped underneath and everyone was running and screaming. They were asking any medics or nurses not to leave.”
Our condolences to the families of those were were lost.
