WESTFIELD, IN – A classic rock performance at a high school north of Indianapolis Thursday suddenly turned into a nightmare journey.

Seventeen Westfield High School students hurt when the stage collapsed toward the end of their spring musical during a performance of Journey's Don't Stop Believin'.

Sara Camden is a mother who was there at the time, and caught it all on video.

"It was like a dog pile down in the pit and just the cover for it was pinning students underneath. And so there was a lot of men that got up there trying to free the students that got caught up there underneath debris. And there was definitely a lot of pandemonium, panic going on there for a little bit. And it’s just one of those moments as a parent that you just dread. You never want to experience that."

One student went to the hospital with minor injuries.

And you can bet no one there will stop believing this accident could have been a whole lot worse.
