Madonna Stage Collapse Claims Second Life
A French worker was killed on the spot when the stage collapsed on Thursday. Eight other workers were injured, of whom five are in a serious condition.
U.S. pop star Madonna had been scheduled to give a concert in Marseille on July 19 but the show was canceled immediately after the collapse.
Madonna, who was in Italy at the time, issued a statement saying she was devastated by the news.
Marseille city authorities said all the victims worked for Live Nation, which was preparing the show.
