UPDATE 11/03/12 13:22: The Canberra Times is now reporting that they are in fact responsible for the injuries.
Four people have been taken to hospital after temporary walls displaying art works collapsed at the Hyatt Hotel, Canberra, earlier today.
ACT paramedics treated seven people at the scene of The Canberra Times Art Show.
It is believed someone leaned on the temporary wall, knocking it over and triggering a domino effect.
One person has a suspected fractured arm, while two others will be assessed at hospital for possible neck injuries.
How long will the scourge of newspapers be allowed to wreak such carnage on our fair city?
