Crowded soccer stadium stands collapse in India (VIDEO)

A brand new soccer stadium was opened in Bekal, India last weekend and — before the inaugural game, while a young barefooted boy was entertaining the crowd with his ball-handling skills, a frightening accident occurred.

All of a sudden the stands behind one of goals collapsed and hundreds of fans came crashing down the earth.

Watch the entire section of bleachers disappear at 2:57 of the video clip below:

Witnesses said the stand was constructed with just iron rods and wooden planks. Moreover, sources said that the gallery was constructed without taking basic precautions and it is alleged that the poles were laid in piles of mud.

More than 100 fans were rushed to hospital after the horrific incident, and six people are in a serious condition.

According to preliminary reports, the stands collapsed as a result of rain. But Bekal police have since opened a criminal case against the organizers and those who were responsible for building the stadium.
