FAIRFIELD - A mother and daughter from Fairfield say they're lucky to be alive after a roof collapse in Virginia over the weekend.

Donna and Kristen Santos were in Virginia for a speed skating competition at the Prince William Ice Center.

Kristen, 15, is back at her home rink in Shelton on Monday. She says she was putting on her skates when she was told to leave because someone had heard the roof creaking under the weight of the snow.

Less than two hours later, the whole roof had collapsed.
