Roof collapses at horse boarding facility in Alberta

The roof collapsed at an Okotoks horse boarding facility on Monday.

Morgen Langner, the operations manager with JM Equestrian, said they started hearing loud noises at around 9 a.m.

At first, she said they thought it was ice sliding off the roof, but the noise got progressively worse throughout the day.

At around 4:30 p.m., her colleague Ryan Davis went up into the attic area of the building to have a look.

“He came out and said, ‘You need to get out, it’s not good,’” she said.

A quick decision was made to evacuate the building, and all of the animals were moved to a safe distance.

At around 4:48 p.m., just as the last person was exiting the building, the roof came crashing down.
