Giant Screen Falls During Concert in Hong Kong, Crushing Dancers
A live performance by Hong Kong boy band Mirror was cut short after a screen fell and crushed dancers below, at least 3 injured. The energetic performers appear to be entertaining the crowd before the night takes a horrible turn.
Thursday evening, boy band Mirror performed their first concert at Hong Kong Coliseum. The performers seem to be entertaining the crowd before the evening takes a dark turn. In the disturbing video, the big LCD screen that was hanging above the stage seems to fall down.
The heavy screen makes a direct hit, knocking the dancer flat on his back, pinning him underneath. It then falls on its side, landing on another dancer.
Local reports say as many as 3 people in the show were injured as a result of the collapse. The video showed the moment the screen fell onto the stage, prompting numerous screams from fans in attendance.
Thursday's incident comes just a few days after one of the band's members, Frankie Chan Sui-fai, fell off the stage while giving a speech during a concert.
According to the South China Morning Post, Chan was able to get back on stage shortly after and told fans, "I'm sorry, I fell." In a social media post after the concert, Chan wrote, "Sorry for making everyone worry. I was too focused on my words. Only some bruises. I'm a lucky man," the South China Morning Post reported.
