Authorities say a wall has collapsed at a high school football playoff game in northwest South Carolina and a dozen students have been taken to the hospital.

Union County Sheriff's Cpl. Randy Manus says students were leaning against a concrete wall as a television crew filmed the fans just after halftime 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, another 15 students had cuts and bruises. He did not know the conditions of those taken to the hospital.

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