Sugarland's Stage Collapses At The Indiana State Fair

The death toll has risen to five after the stage at the Indiana State Fair collapsed on Saturday night. Sara Bareilles had just finished her set and Sugarland was set to take the stage but warnings of sever weather halted the show. Within minutes, the stage “snapped like a toothpick” after a strong gust of wind. Video of the collapse, that injured numerous fans, shows what can only be described as a terrifying scene…

The video appears to be shot from fairly far away from the stage, but it clearly shows the weather and sudden collapse of the structure, along with the frightened reactions of the crowd. The content of the following video is a bit disturbing.

All of us at WQYK have the people of Indiana, the families of the lost fans and the injured in our hearts and minds. We will keep you posted as the story develops.
