6 Injured When Arkansas State University Stadium Bench Falls

September 13, 2012

Arkansas State University officials say five current and one former student were injured when the aluminum bench they were sitting on broke and fell during the ASU-Memphis football game.

A news release from the university on Monday says the seat apparently broke about 7 p.m. Saturday at the base where it was attached to the concrete deck.

The university said four of those injured were treated at a local hospital – but that it could not discuss their conditions because of federal privacy laws.

ASU said that none of the injuries were life-threatening.

ASU Chancellor Tim Hudson said in a statement that officials are still investigating the accident.
