      Several years ago we offered 1 haller coins at our website.

      There is an old Slovak saying, "Not worth a Haller".

A witness estimated there were ca. 150 people inside the hall, all managed to get out unhurt. Here's a more complete video showing the accident and some of the damage after it:

Preliminary reports have said that the stadium structure, including the insulation ceiling, appears to have been built according to the applicable standards. It seems that the temperature inside the building may not have been regulated properly, which caused more frost/ice to accumulate on the suspended inside ceiling than it is designed to support. The police are investigating.
