Another Stage Collapse (Sugarland) Indiana State Fair
A stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair before the country band Sugerland was to perform.
According to local reports, high winds played a factor.
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."

INDIANAPOLIS - Four people were reportedly killed when a stage collapsed at a concert at the Indiana State Fair.
I dunno what is , weird weather or something else but this is the first one with a body count.
This always enters my mind since Curtis Mayfield (RIP) was hurt but I'm just usually worried about the lighting rig and not the whole roof/canopy of the stage.
