At least one person has been killed and more than 20 injured after parts of the stage collapsed due to gusts of wind during a concert in Spain.
A Valencia government official said three of the wounded were in critical condition on Saturday.
Organizers said in a statement that an “unexpected and violent thunderstorm” struck the grounds of the Medusa Festival in Cullera, Spain, at around 4 a.m. local time on Saturday.
As the weather worsened, the organizers ordered the evacuation of the area around the stage, saying, “Unfortunately, a devastating meteorological event caused some structures to suffer unexpected events.”
Videos taken at the scene showed fragments of a platform breaking in strong gusts of wind.
Local media reported that a 28-year-old man had died.
“Medusa Festival Management would like to express our deepest and sincere condolences to the family and friends affected by last night’s fatalities,” organizers said in a statement.
The electronic music festival began on Friday.
