A wall collapsed at a high school football playoff game in northwest South Carolina and a dozen students were taken to the hospital.

Union County Superintendent David Eubanks tells WSPA-TV that the injuries were not life-threatening.

Union County Sheriff's Cpl. Randy Manus says students were leaning against a concrete wall during the third quarter of Friday night's game between Union and J.L. Mann. Manus says students fell about six feet to the ground.

Manus says besides those taken to the hospital, about 15 other students had cuts and bruises.

He says the students were Union fans. The game resumed after a delay.
