Stage collapses

Three workers were injured Thursday when the stage for an upcoming Elton John concert collapsed at the Maya pyramids of Chichen Itza, in southern Mexico, event organizers said.
The injured were taken to a nearby hospital where two were promptly released but the third was retained for surgery to a fractured leg," concert organizer Jorge Esma told reporter.
The concert, scheduled for Saturday, "will not be canceled" despite the damage, which is being repaired at full speed, he added. The stage collapsed when the upper section of an 80m-high (262-foot) metal structure came crashing down. The accident cut off tourist access to the archeological site all Thursday.
