Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels said that the collapsing stage disaster this weekend at the Indiana State Fair, which killed 5 and injured 45 more, was a "fluke" that no one could have anticipated: "This is the finest event of its kind in America, this is the finest one we've ever had, and this desperately sad, as far as I can tell fluke event doesn't change that."
Daniels said precautions were taken before the storm and that no one could have predicted such a strong gust on the stage.
