Students Injured in SoCal School Stage Collapse

No one was trapped and everyone was accounted for, police said

Families were allowed to pick up personal items Sunday afternoon after about two dozen students were hurt when a stage collapsed during a dance performance inside an Orange County high school theater Saturday.

Rosary High School officials invited families and students to pray for those injured in the incident.

The stage collapse at Servite High School at 1952 W. La Palma Ave. in Anaheim was reported just before 11 p.m., according to the Anaheim Police Department.

About 200 students, mostly girls, were performing to a Beyonce song when the stage collapsed. The students were taken to the gymnasium where they met their parents and emergency officials checked them for injuries. 

Officials said about 25 students suffered minor to moderate injuries and were taken to local hospitals. No one was trapped and everyone was accounted for, police said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the students and their families," according to a statement from the Rosary High School and Servite High School. 

Servite High School is an all-boys Roman Catholic college preparatory, but students from the all-girls preparatory Rosary High School use the theater for performances.
