Tent collapse kills one and injures 100 in St. Louis
One person is dead and five others are in critical condition after a tent collapsed outside a St. Louis sports bar Saturday afternoon, according to KSDK-TV.
Strong winds caused the collapse of the tent right outside Kilroy’s Sports Bar, near Busch Stadium. Police said that 17 of the approximately 100 people injured in the incident were taken the hospital.
Kilroy’s owner Art Randall described to The St. Louis Today the traumatic incident he and others witnessed.
“I thought a train fell off the track,” he said. “We all ducked for cover. Everything was going sideways. I had metal chairs ripping across the beer garden.”
