Authorities in Indiana have charged two women for allegedly falsifying hospital records to collect money intended for victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse.
Both women claimed they were injured when a stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair in August, killing seven and wounding 61, authorities said.
"It is particularly troubling that individuals would attempt to illegally profit upon a tragedy such as the State Fair stage collapse," said Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry. "We will not stand idly by while greedy individuals take from those who are truly deserving of compensation from this tragedy."
