Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A ceiling or a balcony inside the Apollo Theatre in London collapsed Thursday during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.

Several injuries have been reported, and there may still be people trapped in the rubble.

"I think the front part of the balcony fell down. At first we thought it was part of the show, it was very dramatic. We got out with cuts and bruises, I think most people did," said Martin Bostock, who was in the theater when the theater collapsed at approximately 8:15 p.m. local time.
