Tent Collapses at Trencin Slovakia Music Festival: 1 Dead
One person has been killed, and dozens more injured after a tent collapses at the Pohoda music festival in Trencin Slovakia. The music festival has now been canceled.
About 33,000 people were at the event that featured Patti Smith, Basement Jazz and Travis, and all have now been evacuated. 15 of the injured have serious injuries and about 38 people were taken to hospital.
Interior Minister Robert Kalinak said a "young boy" was killed when a gust of wind lifted then brought down the tent on hundreds of people sheltering from a heavy downpour, the SITA news agency said.
Some reports are saying three people have died, but this is not known at this time as confirmed.
