65 Hurt in London Theater Ceiling Collapse

At least 65 people have been injured, five of them seriously, when part of a ceiling collapsed at a theater in London.

The incident occurred at the Apollo Theater during a Thursday evening performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Rescue workers at the scene said all those trapped in the 775-seat auditorium by the collapse have been freed.

Witnesses said the ceiling portion simply collapsed during the performance, sending those inside into a panic when they realized it was not part of the play.

Police said the cause of the collapse was not clear, but there was no indication that it was the result of any deliberate act or attack.
