Student performers injured in Indiana stage collapse

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

A video posted on Twitter shows young musicians performing the Journey hit “Don’t Stop Believin'”. Many others join them, clapping and dancing, just before the stage collapses and people are heard screaming.

Sara Camden, who shot the video footage, told local broadcaster FOX59 that there was pandemonium inside the auditorium.

At least one of the injured at Westfield High School, about 20 miles (30 km) north of Indianapolis, was in a critical condition, Westfield Police Captain Charles Howell told reporters.

Between 15 and 30 youngsters were on the main stage when it collapsed, said Matt Layton, the shift supervisor for the Hamilton County emergency dispatch center.

Jen Dial, a spokeswoman for the St. Vincent Health System, said 13 students were treated at St. Vincent hospitals, though all but five were minors whose conditions could not be disclosed. All five students older than 18 were in good condition, she said.

The school’s website said a performance of the play “American Pie” was scheduled for Thursday night.

Chris Baldwin of Westfield Washington Schools said classes would continue on Friday and students would be able to see counselors. Authorities were investigating the cause of the collapse.
