Authorities: 4 dead in Indiana fair stage collapse

“It was horrible, people were running and going crazy,” she said.

Jessica Alsman told the AP the towering, metal stage scaffolding “kind of wobbled at first.” Then pandemonium set in as it fell.

“As soon as we saw the wind gust, the wind was in our faces,” Alsman said. She said and three friends grabbed each other and formed a chain.

“You can’t imagine _ we just thought it was going to rain or something,” Alsman said.

Sugarland tweeted about the incident about an hour after it happened.

“We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you’ll join us. They need your strength,” the band said.
