Stage collapse during school performance caught on video

New video shows the moment when a stage collapsed, sending 25 teens to the hospital in Anaheim, California.

CaptureThe front section of a wooden stage suddenly gave way during a school performance Saturday night.

The performers fell about five feet.

Most of the injuries were broken bones, bruises and scrapes.

Investigators say the cause appears to be too many students on the stage and too much weight on the platform.

They’re also checking the school’s stage permit to determine if it’s up to date.
