Stage-collapse report due this week

February 6, 2012

Indiana regulators plan to release a report Wednesday on their investigation into August’s stage-collapse disaster at the Indiana State Fair. The state Department of Labor said Monday that the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s findings will be released during a Wednesday morning briefing at the Statehouse. Seven people died and 58 were injured after a stage collapsed Aug. 13 at the state fairgrounds. Two out-of-state companies hired by the state are also reviewing the collapse and the state’s emergency response.
