Witnesses Share Details of the Accident
Talking about the whole situation, Steven Neeley, who attended the concert, said, “We seen a figure, at first we didn’t think it was a person, we thought it, you know, they had been tossing volleyballs and different stuff around the crowd. But when you heard the thud twice, then we knew it was a person. You could hear the audible gasps over the music playing.”
Another witness, Krista Neeley, added, “Everyone was just kind of standing around looking, trying to figure out what to do, who to talk to, who to get to come over to the landing and check the person out. We didn’t know if they were breathing or not breathing or what was going on.”
Another woman revealed that the man fell on top of her boyfriend adding, “I got him back in our aisle, and that is when I saw the man who was on the ground next to where my [boyfriend] was standing. The time it took to get medics there to help was ridiculous. People around were trying to help, but there was just blood everywhere.”
Similar Accident Occurred during the Weeknd’s Concert Last Month
Accidents during concerts have become fairly common now. Last month, a man fell from a 40 feet-high escalator rail during the Weeknd’s After Hours til Dawn opening show at the Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia. He died of the injuries.
In another incident, Billie Eilish had to stop her concert a couple of months ago to help a fan who was feeling breathless. She even got the fan an inhaler and made sure the person was okay before restarting her performance.
