Stage Collapses at Sugarland Concert - Four Confirmed Dead

A stage has collapsed at the Indiana State fair on Saturday (August 13) right before band Sugarland was supposed to take the stage, CNN reports.

A gust of wind is said to have caused the destruction, and authorities are reporting at least 4 confirmed dead and 24 more injured.

“A big gust of wind came through. You could see a lot of people panicking. All the scaffolding and speakers…all that came crashing down…and the whole stand just collapsed,” said a witness.

“We are stunned and heartbroken for the fans and their families in Indiana.” said Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles. “We hold those injured in our prayers at this very sad time. There are no words. It is tragic.”
