A 24-year-old woman who sustained injuries in a stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair this month remained on life support Monday, according to the Marion County Coroner’s Office. Indiana police initially said that Meagan Toothman had died.

A seventh person has died from injuries sustained after scaffolding collapsed at the Indiana State Fair on August 13, according to state police.

Megan Toothman, 24, died late Sunday night, Indiana State Police First Sergeant David Bursten said Monday.

Additional details were not immediately available.

The scaffolding collapsed during a storm just as the country music duo Sugarland was about to begin performing. The structure holding lights fell onto fans gathered in front of the stage minutes after authorities had taken the stage to warn the audience of an approaching storm.

The National Weather Service estimated winds of 60 mph to 70 mph were raking the area when the incident occurred.

Five people died in the immediate aftermath of the collapse. A sixth victim died on Friday.
