Trib­utes as woman dies at con­cert

Evening Times - - FRONT PAGE -

A POP­U­LAR band has paid trib­ute to a woman who col­lapsed and died at one of their per­for­mances in Glas­gow.

The four-piece trib­ute group the Jersey­tones were at the Mar­riott Ho­tel on Sat­ur­day night when a mem­ber of the au­di­ence be­came ill.

The Glas­gow-based band tweeted: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the fam­ily and friends of May McIn­tyre who very sadly passed away while at­tend­ing our per­for­mance.

“Even though paramedics at­tended the scene they couldn’t save her. We would like to thank ev­ery­one who at­tended to help.”

A woman who was in the au­di­ence at the con­cert said the woman, who was in her 60s, be­came ill while the band was hav­ing a break and not on­stage.

She added: “They should have come back for the sec­ond half of their per­for­mance but they de­cided not to. What hap­pened to the woman was really tragic.”

A Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice spokesper­son said they re­ceived a call just be­fore mid­night on Sat­ur­day to at­tend the in­ci­dent and the woman was taken to the Royal In­fir­mary.
