Twenty-four students who were injured in a dramatic stage collapse in Anaheim Saturday night have all been released from area hospitals, according to Anaheim Police Department.

"All 24 students who were transported that night have been released from the hospitals. No calls have been received requesting counseling from the PD,” said Anaheim Ltd. Tim Schmidt.

The students — from the all-girls Rosary High School in Fullerton — were finishing up their annual “Red & Gold” performance at Servite High School in Anaheim just before 11 p.m. when the stage buckled and collapsed, dropping students into a changing room below, according to police and witnesses.

At least two hundred girls took part in the performance. Injuries were limited to broken bones, bruises and scrapes, according to authorities. Some who’d seen the stage collapse said they were relieved the injuries were not more serious.

The investigation is on-going to determine the cause of the collapse.
