The Science Channel on your local cable provider is now airing a segment on the collapse of the Rosemont Horizon during its construction phase. Today it is known as the Allstate Arena. You can find it on the Science Channel in the series called Engineering Catastrophes as Season 5, Episode 1.
I helped bring this story as it’s told to production; I feel that it is a tribute to those who were injured and killed constructing it 4 decades ago. I think and pray for those everytime I attend an event there, drive past there, and for sure I pause and remember every year on August 13th.
