A man reportedly fell through the roof at Topshop's show venue in London earlier this morning. According to Metro UK, the Fashion East show was underway when the man, a worker from an adjacent building, fell through the plastic corrugated roofing and hit his head on scaffolding before landing on his back 50 feet below.
Amazingly, the Fashion East show was not stopped even though the man fell mid-way through and many in the audience witnessed the accident. He was treated by paramedics and taken to a hospital by ambulance while the venue's show schedule carried on as normal.
Metro UK posted a picture of the caved-in rooftop where the man fell:

After the Fashion East show ended, Topshop took to Twitter to reassure everyone that the man was being properly treated:
