Sixty-five hurt as London theatre ceiling collapses

A night out ended badly for these London theater goers on Thursday. At least 65 were hurt when a part of the ceiling of the Apollo theater collapsed on top of the audience during a live show. It happened around 8:30 pm local time during a performance of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time". The theater was packed at the time and the audience included many families. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED MALE THEATER GOER SAYING: "The ceiling came down, a lot of dust, chandelier, wood, that sort of stuff, landed on about five or six rows." SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED YOUNG FEMALE THEATER GOER SAYING: "We just thought it was sound effects of the theater, and then we just looked up the whole ceiling, it was like slow motion, it kind of came down." The London Ambulance Service says five of the injured were taken to the hospital with more serious injuries. No fatalities were reported. Witnesses say the ceiling just collapsed right down
