Czech Republic Sports Complex Roof Collapsed During Game
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Around 80 athletes and fans had to scramble to safety after the
roof collapsed at a sports arena in the Czech Republic. The newly-built facility was
housing a floorball game when the ceiling starting falling. The cause
of the collapse is undetermined however it is thought that the pressure
of snow could be a factor on the wooden beams. A frightening video shows
everyone running while the roof fell in making the gym go black. An investigation
is ongoing, and the site is cordoned off, and no injuries were reported
from the accident.
Accidents happen at sporting venues whether it is faulty lighting, slippery
floors, poor maintenance or inadequate housekeeping. However, if any injuries
happen at these venues, the complex or company may be liable for injuries
because of their negligence. These injuries can happen to the players,
coaches and fans that are in attendance. The facility and its equipment
should be properly maintained at all times and checked on a regular basis.
Seeking medical care is important if your injuries warrant attention and
