Watch The Terrifying Moment Choir Vanishes As Stage Collapses

Students reaching for the high notes crashed down to the ground when a stage gave way beneath them in China.

Twenty-five choristers were hospitalized after a 10-foot-high wooden platform collapsed at Beihang University in Beijing on Saturday, reports the South China Morning Post.

An audience member captured footage on a cell phone that shows the 100-strong group sing “Happy Birthday” to mark the 30th anniversary of the college’s aeronautical engineering school.

But dozens of them then suddenly disappear mid-song, sparking screams from the audience.

None of the hospitalized students suffered serious injury, according to The Telegraph.

The university has canceled future events due to be held in the 880 capacity Chenxing Music Hall as it investigates the incident, reports Metro.

It’s the second stage collapse to hit a Chinese college this year. The top three rows of a choir fell through the stage during a college concert in Sichuan Province in July.

In central Indiana, more than a dozen people were injured when the stage at Westfield High School collapsed during a student performance in April.
