INDIANAPOLIS — A cheerleading coach has died from head injuries she suffered when a stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair, making her the seventh fatality in the accident.

The Marion County coroner's office says 24-year-old Meagan Toothman died Monday night.

Toothman had been scheduled to undergo organ donation surgery Monday afternoon but the statement did not say if the surgery went ahead. The Associated Press left messages with the coroner's office and police.

Strong winds toppled a stage onto a crowd of fans Aug. 13 as they waited for country band Sugarland to perform. Three fans and a security guard died at the scene, while a fourth fan and a stagehand later died of their injuries. Some four dozen people were hurt, many seriously.
