At least 25 persons were injured when a section of railing collapsed during a college football game at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, Ontario, tossing an undetermined number of spectators 10 feet to the pavement below.
Ottawa Police Inspector Jim Carroll said the injured, most of whom appeared to be students, were taken to three area hospitals and that some of them appeared to be seriously hurt. The accident happened during halftime of the annual Panda Game between the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. . .
Clemson junior linebacker Norman Haynes and two other football players have been suspended indefinitely, Coach Danny Ford said. Ford did not say what prompted the suspensions or how long they would last.
Haynes, a 5-foot-9, 210-pounder from Athens, Ga., started the first five games for the seventh-ranked Tigers and had 29 tackles, fourth best on the team.
Greg Bailey, who holds on extra points, and reserve defensive end Keith Johnson also were suspended, Ford said in a one-paragraph release . . .
