So sad! My prayers for the victims and their families!

May people learn from this tragedy and develop guidelines and better communication to prevent the terrible event from happening again.

I'm a bit behind on the news, and I just found out about this...ugh. This hits close to home, as my boyfriend is a stagehand. There was another stage collapse not too long ago, at a Cheap Trick concert in Canada.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/15/us...na.html?ref=us

Quote:
Stagehands operating lights and equipment high above the stage plummeted into the crowd along with the rigging, according to concertgoers.

Most of the victims had seats in the V.I.P. section called the “Sugarpit,” according to WTHR.com, a local NBC affiliate.

Witnesses said that concertgoers, who initially fled as the rigging collapsed, rushed back moments later to help those caught in the debris as the thunderstorm rolled in.
My thoughts are with folks in IN tonight, both those who were working the show, and all the folks who rushed back in to help.
