The death toll from a stage collapsing at the Indiana State Fair has climbed to five, Indiana State Police Sgt. Dave Bursten said Sunday. A massive burst of wind tore down the stage Saturday night. More than 40 people were injured. “A big gust of wind came through. You could see a lot of people panicking,” said Aaron Richman, who witnessed the collapse. “All the scaffolding and speakers — all that came crashing down — and the whole stand just collapsed.” The fair is closed Sunday, officials said.
So CNN. Very tragic. Almost Job-ian.
