The ceiling of a packed London theatre collapsed on the audience during a performance Thursday, wounding more than 88 people including children and leaving terrified theatregoers covered in blood and dust. The incident happened at the Apollo Theatre during the West End show "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" and comes the week before Christmas when London's theatres are traditionally busy. Rescuers commandeered a red London double decker bus to transport some of the wounded to hospital, according to AFP journalists at the scene. "We have treated 81 walking wounded and seven more seriously injured patients at the Apollo Theatre incident," London Ambulance Service said in a statement.
