Pukkelpop Festival Death Toll Rises To 5

    The AP is reporting that after high winds at yesterday’s Pukkelpop festival in Belgium, five people are dead from a collapsing stage. The original reports just cited serious injuries to many people (the total is now up to 140), but the death toll has risen to five in the last 24 hours. Organizers have canceled the remaining days of the festival, a choice made after it became clear the carnage that happened, and due to continued severe weather in Belgium (the wind was described as “violent”).
