Several people injured after roof of Twente stadium collapses

Regional police in the Netherlands have confirmed that several people have been injured in an accident in the Twente stadium. The roof of one of the stands in the Grolsch Veste has collapsed while builders were working on the stadium.

The story is too old to be commented.

... and at least 12 injured, with some people still burried under the debris.

Hopefully, the death-toll won't rise, but considering there were workers ON the roof when it collapsed, it wouldn't surprise me.

A sad day.

thats pretty bad then, didnt think it would actually be that bad... :/

... but at least there weren't any people (visitors/fans) or something sitting there when it happened.

Could have been much worse, but it's still bad ofcourse.

just heard the news on TV, damn I hope it not as bad as it reported. But thank God it's not during match day or it could be worst
