Lawsuits filed on behalf of two victims of Indiana State Fair Tragedy
Valparaiso, IN. - Just days after a devastating stage collapse, an injured woman is speaking out about her injuries, the loss of her partner, and a lawsuit filed.
It was almost a week ago, that a stage at the Indiana State Fair collapsed killing four people immediately and injuring dozens.
It was just Saturday that the sixth person died as a result of the collapse. 22-year-old Jennifer Haskell, a senior at Ball State University died Saturday morning.
Her death came on the same day a lawsuit was filed on behalf of the family of Tammy VanDam. She is the Wanatah woman who was killed right when in the accident happened.
Tammy's life partner, Beth Urschel, was also a victim in the tragic accident and filed a lawsuit along with the VanDam family today.
Today was the first time Beth Urschel talked publicly about that tragic night. She was understandably very emotional, and tearful as she relived that painful night almost one week ago.
