I just got to talk to my wife. She siad that someone in the crowd yelled "Tornado" and people started to run, my wife said just a few seconds before the stage fell. She said they got pushed into a rail and the rail fell on a man and woman trying to leave. They helped get that couple up and then they kept running for safety.....OMG!!
