The Bellevue Reporter reports that a little girl was injured and taken to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue when a tent over the Group Health Ice Arena in Bellevue’s downtown park collapsed. According to fire department personnel, the tent collapsed under the weight of snow and ice and fell on the 10 people or so who were skating at the time.
After the accident the Bellevue police department cautioned that people with flat roofs, sheet metal roofs and the like remove the snow to reduce the load. In 1996, car ports, boat sheds and flat roofs collapsed after a heavy snow storm.
