Players Escape Injury In Stadium Roof Collapse Amid Badminton Tournament In Vietnam

A partial stadium collapse shocked onlookers at a badminton tournament earlier this week in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City.

Video of the terrifying event, uploaded to YouTube Tuesday, shows huge chunks of debris falling from the ceiling as spectators flee the court.

According to the video description, and a tweet from professional badminton player Carissa Turner, no one was injured in the incident:

Vietnamese news source 24H reports the badminton players who would have been playing under the collapsed area were alerted to the impending danger by spectators and left the area in time to escape injury.

WATCH the collapse, above.
