If 80 people are going to stand on a stage, you’d think somebody would have thought to reinforce it.
Well, apparently not, as this video shows what happens when a stage can’t take the weight of such a large group of people and collapses.
Fortunately, no deaths have been reported as a result of the accident but eight people were injured.
The shocking footage was filmed during rehearsals for a singing competition at the grand theatre in Nijie, a city of eight million in China.
The accident took place on Saturday afternoon local time and the video was posted Sunday by China Central TV, who said the cause of the stage failure is being investigated.
However, it’s probably safe to say that somebody is getting fired for this blunder!
