We'll bet to that. First, a breaking story overnight. Look at this video. A high school stage filled with students performing a concert. There it is. The stage suddenly collapses. ABC news' Alex Perez is in Westfield, Indiana, where it all happened. Reporter: Good morning, Lara. That video hard to believe. The students in their spring concert final performance when celebration turned to chaos. ? don't stop believing ? Reporter: A group of students dancing on to the stage during the final number when suddenly, it gives way under their feet, sending the cast tumbling into the orchestra pit below. ? Don't stop believing ? I just saw everybody drop in front of me. I heard a bunch of screams. Reporter: From another angle, you can see the collapse happening so fast, the lead singer doesn't notice at first what's happening behind her. I got seven ambulances en route right now. Approximately 50 to 60 people trapped below the stage. Reporter: Students on stage and in the audience rush into action. Move, move. Reporter: Helping pull people from the fallen stage. We rushed right down there. I wanted to see if everyone in was okay. Reporter: Local authorities say 16 students were injured and hospitalized in the fall. The incident was handled very quickly and very efficiently. A lot of organization has taken place. Reporter: Authorities now investigating what caused the stage to give way, causing this chaotic scene. I don't know how there weren't more injuries than there were. I'm very thankful for that. Reporter: And officials say they are very lucky. All students walking away from this with only minor injuries. The school will be open today as investigators work to figure out what exactly went wrong here. George? We're joined by the Singh on the stage, Nicole criska and Sam grayhouse. Nicole and Sam, thank you for joining us. Nicole, you were singing there at the front of the stage when everything collapsed behind you. When tid you realize what happened? Um, as it was happening, because, unlike the audience, I had reversed that multiple time throughout the week. I knew that nothing of that nature was supposed to happen. Then you just hear a huge crash. You know it's not supposed to happen. You know something's wrong. And Sam, you were sitting there right in the front row. Not on the stage. But you jumped right in and started the rescue operation. As soon as the stage went down, I just hopped up and started pulling people out of that hole. It's kind of incredible how orderly the rescue was. Given how unexpected, how crazy this crash was. We really came together, I think, in this moment. And just work as one unit. Basically help everybody out and try to get everybody safe. And Nicole, so many friends there on the stage behind you. What was fwroing through your mind? What H what did you do? I kind of just shut down. I had no idea what to do. I didn't speak or move until I was forcibly moved. Like, the microphone wasn't out of my hand until half an hour later because I just was in shock, basically. We thought the worst thing that could happen on that song was someone would miss their cue. What have they told you about why this went down, Sam, and what actually was wrong with the stage? It was just too much weight. And with even jumping on the stage. But, I don't think it was a design flaw. I think it was just -- too much weight. Simple as that. We had done rehearsaling doing the same thing on the stage and had no issues. We had no reason to think that would happen. Exact same thing? Same number of people? Same number of people. I have heard from people that got hurt that the girl who was in critical condition last night is doing much better today. As far as injuries go, the worst ones are comparatively mild to what could have happened. Thank good Ness for that. We hope everyone gets better soon. Thank you. Major terror raid overnight.
