Emergency vehicles converge onto the scene
Just flashing across national news wires, the Walker Bros. Circus tent at the Fairgrounds in Lancaster, NH was felled by a storm, killing two people, including a 6-year old child, and injuring fifteen others, so far.
A crowd estimated at 100 people were under the tent when it broke stakes and came down. Some managed to make early escapes just before the big top fell.
In a related story, the Walker Bros. collapse occurred only a day after another circus tent at the Chicago Prairie Festival went down over a crowd who had sought shelter in side it during a storm. One man was killed, more than a dozen injured.
