A Linkin Park fan has died and at least 19 others were injured when an advertising board fell on top of some concert attendees.
Linkin Park, a wildly popular American rock band, was headlining a concert in Cape Town, South Africa on Wednesday, November 7. Just outside of the Cape Town Stadium, where the concert was scheduled to take place, advertising boards were erected and propped up by scaffolding.
As concert attendees queued to get inside the stadium, strong winds toppled one of the large advertising boards and sent heavy scaffolding crashing onto a group of people.
Among those injured were concert goers and energy drink promoters. Emergency responders came to the scene and found close to two dozen individuals injured. Disaster management officials have reported that one woman suffered a wrongful death, three people remain in critical condition, and 16 others have personal injuries of varying degrees.
