A tea dance was held in the lobby of the Kansas City Hyatt Regency on July 17, 1981. Above the lobby, a series of walkways crossed the open space above the lobby, with the fourth floor walkway suspended over the second floor walkway. The excess weight of people that night collapsed the forth floor walkway onto the second, sending both down to the lobby. 114 people died and over 200 injured in the disaster.
