This weekend's fight at the Indoor Fun Fair at Tulsa's Expo Square have those in charge reviewing what, if anything, could have been done to prevent it.

One fight turned into several, there were shouts that someone had a gun, people panicked and raced in all directions. Tulsa Police officers were called in to evacuate the building.

Seven teenagers were taken into custody for assaulting police. One parent, Susan Penn, knocked down in the crush, lost track of her two young daughters for a time. "I found the girls my daughter had been standing in line with and asked them about her. They thought she'd been knocked down. All I could think about was people in the Chicago nightclub trampled and people in the Rhode Island club and I was thinking, oh my God."

Susan found her daughters but says they won't go back unless the Fair requires parents to stay with their children, rather than drop them off.

Police say the good news is no one was hurt and nothing was damaged.
