    The stage collapses at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis, Indiana. The stage fell just before country duo Sugarland were scheduled to perform, killing seven people.

    The victim's of last summer's stage collapse in Indiana could receive more money from the state.

    Indiana lawmakers are thinking about introducing legislation this week that would give the victims an additional $4 million dollars, according to the Associated Press.

    Lawmakers hope the extra money will pay for medical costs not covered by the $5 million dollars they've already received from the state.

    Seven people died and 58 others were injured when the stage rigging fell at the Fair back in August.
