London U.K Apollo Theatre Roof Collapses on Packed House

From the BBC:

At least 88 people have been injured - seven seriously - after part of the roof at London's Apollo Theatre collapsed.

The incident happened during a performance of the play The Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night-time.

Eye-witnesses reported hearing a "cracking" noise before the collapse at about 20:15 GMT.
London Ambulance say around 76 people are walking wounded and all those who were trapped had been freed.

Probably should send in building inspectors to evaluate those old buildings every once in a while.
