INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Attorneys for country duo Sugarland say the injuries fans suffered in a deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair were “their own fault.”

Sugarland’s attorneys say some or all of the injuries happened because fans failed to take steps to ensure their own safety before high winds toppled stage rigging onto the crowd awaiting the band’s Aug. 13 concert.

Seven people died and 58 were injured.

In a Feb. 16th response to a civil suit filed in November, they also say fair officials and stage rigging builder Mid-America Sound Corp. were responsible for the stage setup. They call the wind that toppled the structure an “act of God.”

Sugarland’s attorneys are seeking a jury trial.
