5 dead in Belgian Festival accident

Five people have died when the stage collapsed at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium yesterday.

This comes just a week after a similar accident in Indiana in the US also took five lives.

Both accidents occured during severe storms at the sites.

Investigators will no doubt be looking into any similarities in the two accidents, or if they were just freak accidents.

Re: 5 dead in Belgian Festival accident

This is so bad.
I had news from several of my friends they are all ok.
I used to go every year to that festival and EVERY year it is the biggest mess in term of weather. They have had to evacuate campings etc etc several times. I honeslty do not understand why they never changed the dates....
RIP for the families
