Indiana Gov. Daniels: Foul play not suspected in stage collapse at Indiana State Fair

(CNN) - The Indiana State Fair was scheduled to reopen Monday with a public memorial service for five people killed when a concert stage collapsed during a storm, officials said.

The fairgrounds were closed Saturday night following the accident, which occurred shortly before the country music duo Sugarland was to take the stage before an audience of about 12,000.

Investigators on Sunday sifted through debris of the stage, trying to determine what caused the accident that also injured 40 people, authorities said.

This morning on American Morning, CNN's Alina Cho talks with Gov. Mitch Daniels on the latest into the investigation.
