Re:Tragedy At Indiana's State Fair
I've been following this since it happened, and been alternately sick to my stomach and bawling my eyes out. There are now five confirmed dead and that number is expected to rise. One of the Indianapolis local union spotlight operators (one of my union brothers) was the fifth death, and another one is in the ICU and it doesn't look good.
Words cannot describe the feeling in the pit of my stomach watching video of this happening. I build, climb in, and work under identical stage roofs just about every day of my life in summer. It's hard not to picture myself standing there.
