Stage Collapses in Belgium, Reportedly Killing Four
Another stage has collapsed at an outdoor concert, reportedly killing at least four people.
The stage at the Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium succumbed to heavy rains and wind earlier today, collapsing into the crowd that had gathered to watch Chicago-based band the Smith Westerns.
Just before the collapse, the singer for the band, Cullen Omari tweeted “Looks like it’s going to rain.” Several minutes later, he was back on Twitter saying, “Stage collapsed max almost got crushed by the tress. I hope pukkelpop has insurance bc all our s— is broke.” He followed it up with, “Praying no one got hurt. Wtf.”
Of course, in this age of technology, there’s already at least one video of the collapse up on YouTube. Check it out below.
