Posted by Tasha Weiss on April 16, 2012 at 11:11 AM.

In August 2011, international engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti  was contracted by the Indiana State Fair Commission to conduct a forensic investigation into the causes of the August 13, 2011 collapse incident at the Indiana State Fair in which a stage collapsed, killing seven and injuring more than 40. Last week, Thornton Tomasetti’s findings were presented to the Commission at a press conference in Indianapolis.
