Under severe winter conditions, half of the [physically disabled] children have fallen on the slippery, icy sidewalks of the Canadian small town of Dawson. (plural)

"Most [of the] college guys date..." (plural)

At bartleby you'll notice half + of + plural noun structures often take plural verbs. So do most + of + plural noun structures.
