Three dead in stage collapse at Indiana State Fair

INDIANAPOLIS - Three people were killed and two dozen hurt when an outdoor stage collapsed in windy weather at the Indiana State Fair on Saturday, just minutes before country music duo Sugarland was set to perform.
The Indianapolis Department of Public Safety said in a Twitter message: "3 fatalities and 24 injured transported to local hospitals." There was no immediate word on the extent of the injuries.
Spectators tried to hold up parts of the collapsed stage that fell into the standing area below to help anyone who might be trapped, eyewitnesses said.
