INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – As many watch the Westfield stage collapse footage, some are eerily reminded of an all-too-similar mishap. It happened in California at an Anaheim high school March 8, 2014.

Video showed about 250 girls from Rosary High School performing at a rally at Servite High School when the stage collapsed into the orchestra pit. About 25 people were injured in that collapse, but similar to the Westfield students, they only sustained moderate injuries.

Later an investigation revealed a flaw in the construction of the stage apron, which covers the orchestra pit.
