Indiana Fair Stage Collapse

So so so sad. Concert stage collapsed onto screaming crowd at Indiana State Fair killing at least five and injuring 45...

***Storm causes horrific accident at fair ***At least four people killed and many more injured after stage collapsed ***Children said to be among those injured after getting trapped under the rigging ***Construction worker crushed and 17-year-old boy may never walk again after breaking his back ***Organisers criticised for allowing the event to go ahead despite 60 mph (96 km/h) winds ***Fair to reopen tomorrow with memorial before gigs start again in spite of tragedy
My thoughts go out to the people who lost loved ones and to the injured and their families. I was very impressed at how, instead of running away, the Hoosiers ran towards the stage to try to save as many people as they could.
