During a concert at Westfield High School in Indiana last night (April 23), more than a dozen students were injured when the stage collapsed without warning.

The students were performing a cover of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” when the stage abruptly gave away, taking a group of students down with it, according to NBC News. They landed in an empty room underneath the stage.

“Everyone was dancing and singing and having a ball and then all of a sudden the floor just fell and everybody just fell down. A lot of my friends were up on stage. It was just hard to see them go down… It was pretty bad,” Cameron Snyder, a witness, said.

Charles Hollowell, captain of the Westfield Police, said more than a dozen suffered minor injuries the accident, with at least one in critical condition.

St. Vincent Health added that 13 students were being treated at area hospitals. Five of the victims, over 18 years old, were reported to be in good condition. Information about the eight minors involved was withheld, per privacy regulations.

The fire marshal reported to the scene afterwards, investigating the cause of the stage’s sudden collapse.

Classes resumed today as scheduled, and counselors were available to speak with students.

The team here at THZ wishes everyone involved a speedy recovery.
