A stage collapsed in Toronto Saturday, killing one person and injuring at least three others before a Radiohead concert, according to numerous news outlets.
Police said a man in his 30s was killed by "a heavy, crushing injury," thestar.com reports
, after stage scaffolding fell around 4 p.m. ET, trapping him under debris. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A 45-year-old man was also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and two others were treated for minor injuries.
Irene Constantin, who was working at a nearby concession stand, told thestar.com that the imploded stage “looked like toothpicks.”
"Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight's at downsview park tonight has been cancelled," the band Tweeted
. "Fans are advised not to make their way to the venue." A rep for Radiohead said the band had no comment.
Last summer, a stage collapse in Indiana killed seven people
and injured dozens more at a Sugarland concert.
