LONDON (AP) - British officials say more than 80 people have been injured - seven of them seriously - by a roof collapse at a packed London theater.
London Ambulance Services says it has treated 81 "walking wounded" and 7 more seriously injured patients following the collapse Thursday evening at the Apollo Theatre.
Police say they aren't aware of any fatalities "at this early stage."
The fire department said several trapped people had been rescued.
It said a section of the theater's ceiling had collapsed and took parts of its balconies down with it, sending plaster, wood and debris crashing onto the audience watching a performance of "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime."
