A seventh victim of the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair has died after she was removed from life support so her organs could be donated.
Meagan Toothman, 24, of Cincinnati, died at 3:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Indiana State Police and the Marion County Coroner's Office. Doctors battled brain swelling after she suffered catastrophic injuries following the August 13 stage collapse.
