CALGARY — Three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries after camera equipment fell on them at the Calgary Stampede.

Stampede spokeswoman Jennifer Booth says the incident happened Wednesday evening in the bleacher area of the grandstand.

She says EMS crews responded along with the Stampede's medical team and police.

She says the trio are described as having soft-tissue injuries.

Adam Loria with EMS says the three men included a middle-age man and two people in their late teens or early 20's.

Under investigation

It is not clear what factors led up to the camera equipment falling.

Booth says they are investigating the incident, while Calgary police confirm Occupational, Health and Safety are also conducting their own investigation.

The chuckwagon races, which were going on at the time, were not interrupted.
