Radio France explained in a press release on Saturday evening that a “slab on the ground had collapsed”.
A tragedy narrowly avoided at the Maison de la radio in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. Saturday evening, around 10:30 p.m., during the Hyperweekend festival, the ground collapsed during the concert of rapper Nes, causing 12 minor injuries, according to the Paris Fire Brigade with BFM Paris Île-de-France .
On social networks, we can hear a big noise, before the camera shows the ground which collapsed in the middle of the pit.
Spectators fell about 1m50. According to The Parisianwitnesses present said that the ground would have given way following a “pogo”, a dance during which people jump in a disorderly manner.
Very quickly, Radio France reacted in a press release and explained that a “slab on the ground had collapsed” and that “the security services were on site to ensure that everyone is well”.
About twenty firefighters with a dozen machines intervened on the scene.
