Collapse of Ventilation Grate Kills Many in South Korea


A ventilation grate collapsed into an underground parking lot during an outdoor concert, killing many during a concert in Seongnam, South Korea. According to initial reports, most victims were young students.

About 700 people were attending the concert at the time of collapse. It has been reported that during one concert performance a large group of students climbed up into a vent “hole” to take pictures. Only local media has been able to identify the damage of the collapse, journalists have not been permitted to advance onto grounds of the concert collapse.

The rescue effort continues as reports indicate that at least 15 people at the pop concert died in the collapse of the ventilation grate, and at least 11 others have been hurt.
