Thirty eight people were injured this evening when a platform on which democratic candidates for president were standing collapsed under the weight of the contenders.
All 38 people injured were candidates for president. Only Barak Omama escaped injury, according to a NDC spokesperson.
" He's unscathed, " said the spokesperson. " Not a mark on him. No problem. "
None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening, according to a spokesman for the hospital to which they were rushed.
