BREAKING: Two Dead, Twelve Injured in Building Collapse at DOOM Show in Santiago, Chile
UPDATE, 12:23pm: A third person appear to have died in the accident, according to The PRP.
A building collapsed during a show by British crust punkers DOOM in Santiago, Chile, resulting in two deaths and twelve injuries, according to Blabbermouth.
According to local media reports, the venue, which was fully legal and authorized, was over capacity by at least fifty people, and the crush of fans caused a fence to fall and the subsequent collapse. You can see tweets and photos below.
Needless to say, this is horrible. We here at MetalSucks send our condolences and best wishes to all of the victims and their loved ones. We’ll tell you more as this story unfolds.
