SAN ANTONIO (AP) — GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina has escaped injury when a backdrop of curtains collapsed on her as she appeared in San Antonio.

Fiorina continued her speech Sunday following the accident during the National Association of Women Business Owners convention.

Fiorina was on stage at a podium when the towering backdrop, made up of sections of curtains with metal at the top, crashed down around her. Security personnel rushed to make sure was not hurt.

The accident happened at the Marriott Rivercenter hotel in San Antonio. Fiorina resumed her speech shortly after the incident.

A message left with the hotel was not immediately returned Monday.
