4 people were killed and many more were injured when the stage collapsed tonight at the Indiana State Fair. Watch at your own risk:
High winds were believed to have been the cause.
A reporter for WANE-TV in Indiana was in the crowd at the time and described what happened like this: “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. There were people trapped underneath and everyone was running and screaming. They were asking any medics or nurses not to leave.” – TMZ
