Stadium roof collapses during half time.A very distressing scene coming from Bekal, India last week saw one side of a stadium in India collapse onto a group of fans during a halftime performance.
Alarmingly, it was the stadium’s inaugural game and as a lone man performing keepy-uppies to entertain the crowd the frightening sound of screams suddenly filled the air.
Reports from the scene claim that the grandstand was built using just iron rods and wooden planks and that the supporting poles used to keep the structure upright were planted in piles of mud.
Over 100 people were taken to hospital with six said to be in a serious condition. Bekal police have since opened a criminal case against the organisers and those who responsible for building the stadium.
