A major accident took place on Thursday as hunks of plaster and dust rained down of a London theater on a packed audience. More than 75 people were injured with the collapse of ceiling of the London theatre. Out of 75 people, seven have been reported in a critical condition.
Celebrating the eve of Christmas season, a performance of 'The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time' was going on at the Apollo Theatre. It has been reported that plaster and masonry from a section of the ceiling fell down suddenly, leading to collapse of balconies on the audience.
It has been declared by the London Fire Brigade that more than 700 people were present in the theater at the time. Officials reported that all those who were badly injured on the upper part of their body walked slowly out of the theatre.
It has been reported by police and health officials that they are not sure of what had caused the partial collapse, but are continuing in their research to find out the reason. Dee Stephenson, one member from audience, said: "Then you could feel debris literally coming down on you and then I got hit on back by a large piece. It was a complete dust curtain. You couldn't see".
