Korean media outlet, The Fact, is reporting that a tragedy has occurred during 4minute‘s latest performance, causing two fatalities and over 10 injuries as more than 25 fans fell three stories after a vent collapsed.
Reports reveal that around 5pm on October 17th, a ventilation window collapsed leaving over 25 fans to fall more than 3 stories down a vent during a performance by 4minute. Reports from Wikitree reveal that the fall was roughly 10 meters (3+ stories).
Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene immediately to rescue the fans, penetrating four stories below the surface in order to reach those who had fallen and were injured. Two have been confirmed dead with over 13 fans rescued so far.
Initial reports reveal that the ventilation may have collapsed due to weight, as there were a number of fans who climbed on top of the vent and crowded the area in order to get a better view of the performance. The police has yet to reveal an official statement.
Cube Entertainment has revealed they are looking further into the matter and will be releasing an official statement soon.
