Engineers are trying to determine why a ceiling collapsed at Huntsville’s event center moments before a hockey game started.

A portico collapsed at the Von Braun Center on Tuesday before the Huntsville Havoc game, Al.com reported.

“Nobody was hurt, thankfully,” spokeswoman Samantha Nielsen said.

The portico covered the entrance to the “skate lobby” where hockey players enter and have their locker rooms.
