Dancers crushed by falling LED screen at Mirror concert

A recent Mirror concert in Hong Kong was marred by a horrible incident which saw a giant screen fall and injure two dancers on stage.

An LED video screen fell during Canto-pop group Mirror’s performance at Hong Kong Coliseum (pictured), crushing one dancer before falling onto others.

According to the BBC, two male dancers were hospitalised following the incident, one of which suffered neck injuries and was in a serious condition in intensive care. The other dancer was reported as stable.

The report also said that a number of concert-goers were treated for shock.

Attendees were asked to leave the venue after the concert was immediately halted, but were also told they could retain their tickets until further notice.

According to Variety, the Hong Kong Government has suspended further concerts at Hong Kong Coliseum until it proves the safety of its stage design and mechanical structures.

Organisers Music Nation and MakerVille, which are subsidiaries of Hong Kong telecom company PCCW, said that the remaining eight shows of Mirror’s concert series have been cancelled.

Hong Kong authorities have also ordered an investigation into the incident on stage.

The city’s chief executive John Lee said: “I have contacted the Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism, and instructed the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, together with relevant departments, to comprehensively investigate the incident and review the safety requirements of similar performance activities in order to protect the safety of performers, working staff and members of the public.”
