Mexico stage collapse: 9 dead after gust of wind topples campaign event stage


At least nine people died and fifty others were injured on Wednesday evening in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon after a stage collapsed at a campaign event for the Citizens’ Movement party, the state’s governor said.

The victims were eight adults and one child, the governor said.

Jorge Alvarez Maynez, the presidential candidate for the centrist Citizens’ Movement party, said a gust of wind caused the stage to collapse at the event in the city of San Pedro Garza Garcia.

“A gale came, a sudden wind, and unfortunately, it collapsed the stage, resulting in a fatal accident,” he said.
