Workers Hurt in Dutch Stadium Roof Collapse

At least one person has died and 14 are injured after part of the roof collapsed at the De Grolsch Veste soccer stadium in the Netherlands.

From CNN:

Sniffer dogs are being used to search for any others who may be trapped in the wreckage, Moniek Eberhard in the mayor’s office for the town of Enschede told CNN.

Those injured are thought to be construction workers. It is not known how many people were working in the area when the collapse occurred, at midday local time.

Two people were seriously injured and have been taken to hospital, while three were treated at the scene, Eberhard said.

The club has grown over recent seasons, and was working to expand the seating at its stadium.
