CANTON, Mass. (AP) — A youth hockey team has escaped without injury when part of a snow-weighted roof collapsed at a skating rink.
Police in Canton said everyone is safe and accounted for after the 7:15 a.m. Saturday collapse, and state and local inspectors are evaluating the building.
Police said the rear portion of the roof at the Metropolis Skating Rink began to fail as a Norwood youth team was inside but they were able to get out along with parents and rink workers.
Air pressure from the collapse also damaged part of the building’s front facade.
The rink is located on Route 138 at Washington Street.
State officials say roofs on more than 150 structures have collapsed because of snow loads this winter season.
