Apollo Theater Ceiling Collapse Injures 80 Emergency responders helped treat over 80 people wounded in the ceiling collapse

A portion of the Apollo Theater ceiling collapsed Thursday night during a show and 80 people were injured including seven people who were seriously injuries.  The theater is located in London and opened over a century ago in 1901.  A 33 by 33 foot section of the roof collapsed during a performance of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in Nighttime.” Officials estimate there were 720 people seeing the show at the time of the incident and say that many more people could have been injured.  Part of the theater balconies also fell when the ceiling caved in.
