A stage that collapsed at an Anaheim high school and left two dozen students injured had flawed construction and may not have had a building permit, according to school officials. In a message posted Wednesday on the Servite High School website, President Peter S. Bowen said the school launched an internal investigation following the incident last Saturday in which 24 students from another school were injured during a performance. “The investigation revealed a flaw in the construction of the apron covering the orchestra pit. The apron was not part of the original theater construction and was added sometime in the early 1980's," he wrote.

A video posted to YouTube begins with scores of students onstage, some in headdresses and others holding what appear to be pompoms, swaying to the right and left before jumping up and down and dancing in place. That's when the stage at an Anaheim high school collapsed Saturday night, injuring about two dozen students. Some suffered broken bones, and most of the other injuries were minor to moderate, officials said. Still, questions remain about why the stage collapsed and whether anyone knew about a weight limit or other issues with the structure.
