Nor­way rock con­cert brings the roof down

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

Fif­teen peo­ple suf­fered minor in­juries on Au­gust 21 when the ceil­ing of an Oslo con­cert venue col­lapsed dur­ing a show, po­lice said.

“15 in­jured. They’re be­ing at­tended to by medics,” Oslo po­lice wrote on Twit­ter, adding, “No re­ports of se­ri­ous in­juries.”

Around 1800 stu­dents from the Nor­we­gian Busi­ness School were at­tend­ing a show by Amer­i­can house DJ Steve Aoki at the Sen­trum Scene venue when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened.

“The ceil­ing fell in and it was to­tal chaos. The fire alarm sounded right away,” a stu­dent at­tend­ing the con­cert, Char­lotte Nilsen, told news agency NTB.

Po­lice evac­u­ated the build­ing im­me­di­ately and cor­doned off the area while fire of­fi­cials se­cured the site.
