Two people were killed and another injured after a man fell seven storeys at a concert in Sweden that was paying homage to the iconic pop group ABBA.
Police said an 80-year-old fell into the open foyer of the building in Uppsala, striking two spectators. The one who fell and one of the two who were hit, a 60-year-old, died. A third person, a woman also in her sixties, was injured, but her life is not in danger.
Around 1,000 people had gathered at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress for the tribute concert.
“We received a call regarding a person who either jumped or fell from a great height inside the concert hall in central Uppsala,” said Magnus Jansson Klarin, a spokesperson at the police department.
The drama took place before 7 pm as the spectators arrived at the concert, which was later cancelled.
In a statement released late on Tuesday, police said they “currently have no reason to believe that a crime has been committed in connection with the man’s fall”.
