YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — An inflatable dome has collapsed at Eastern Michigan University, forcing high school soccer players and parents to scramble to safety.

Officials say no one was injured Sunday in Ypsilanti. EMU spokesman Geoff Larcom tells The Ann Arbor News that the dome’s fabric split, causing it to completely deflate in just a few minutes.

EMU students Megan Trapp and Rachel Washburn were working at the athletic field. Campus police praised them for getting people to leave. Washburn says her “adrenaline was flying.”
