INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Structural investigators will begin moving the collapsed stage rigging from the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Monday.

On the evening of August 13th, 2011 high winds blew through central Indiana causing the stage rigging to collapse, killing seven and injuring dozens of Sugarland fans.

Investigators, on Monday, will begin disconnecting suspended items from the rigging. By Wednesday the rigging will be disassembled and ready for transport to an inside location for further analysis.

Over the course of the three days individuals will be able to get their personal belongings back that may have been left under the wreckage.
