Details on Radiohead Concert that Turned Deadly        

ALTUPDATED: Grammy-winning band Radiohead was one hour from starting their sold-out show in Toronto when the stage collapsed, killing one person and injuring others.

Fans had yet to enter Downsview Park, where the concert was scheduled to take place around 5 pm, but crew members were still setting up when the scaffolding above the main stage fell. 

One person was reported dead on the scene while another was transported to the hospital with serious injuries, according to CNN.

The concert was planned for Saturday night, but canceled according to a post on the Park’s official Facebook page. “There has been an incident, more details forthcoming.” 

An update on the Toronto Police Facebook page reads: “1 male in his 30’s pronounced dead at the scene. 1 male, 45, transported to hospital with non-life threatening head injuries. 2 other males, minor injures, not treated. The investigation will continue for some time with the Ministry of Labour. The area/structure has been made safe by Toronto Fire Services and contractors.”
