1 dead as Radiohead stage collapses ahead of Toronto concert
Show cancelled at Downsview Park as 3 others injured, 1 seriously
CBC News

A stage at Toronto's Downsview Park has collapsed in advance of a scheduled Radiohead concert, killing one person and injuring at least three, according to Toronto EMS.

Calls came in to emergency crews at about 4 p.m. ET. One person was declared dead at the scene, one was transported to Sunnybrook Hospital in serious condition and two others were treated for minor injuries and released.

CBC's Maria Nunes was driving by the park when she noticed the commotion. From her vantage point. she could see five ambulances, two police cars and a firetruck.

The 7:30 p.m. concert is cancelled, and Radiohead's official Twitter feed advised fans not to make their way to the venue.

Gates had been scheduled to open at 5 p.m.

Some people at the park ahead of the show are saying on Twitter that the area has been cleared by emergency crews.

Police say the park wasn't full but there was a considerable crowd of people already waiting for the show, and they are now leaving the area. The park is a frequent site of concerts, and 40,000 people were expected for tonight's sold-out show by the hugely popular English band. The opener was to be Canadian act Caribou.

The weather in Toronto at the time of the accident was seemingly calm, with temperatures in the high 20s and the forecast calling for light winds.

The screams of terror and crunching of bones were at first thought to be part of the song.







Jk, Radiohead is great.

Dammit, that's not OK (Computer).

I wonder if the stage just broke or if it got the Bends first.

Alright, I'm done.

The collapse was believed to have caused one onlooker to have an epileptic seizure but it was just Thom Yorke warming up.

I get it... just not my thing. I'm not exactly the target demographic.

Most of those guys are never heard from again. Timberlake is one of those rare exceptions.

I wont listen to his music either. Im 35, so its not my target demo. I just dont get the Hate part of it. especially from males. The only thing i can come up with is Jealousy. Its like what male wouldnt want to live that life for a bit. lol

Well, at least that's a concert that's justifiable dying at. Not like those folks that got splattered at some shitty Sugarland concert.

It's an annoyance thing for me. Any time his music or anything about him is on, I get annoyed. Taylor Swift is the same way. Her songs are awful. But she's everywhere. And everyone loves her. And it is annoying. The difference is, I'd grudge fuck Taylor Swift.
