Grate Collapses at S. Korean Pop Concert, Killing 16

At least 14 people at an open-air pop concert were killed Friday after the metal grate on which they were standing collapsed, sending them plunging down a ventilator shaft.

Officials said at least 10 others were injured while watching a performance of the popular female band 4Minute in an area south of the South Korean capital. Roughly 700 people, many of them young girls, attended the concert.

Hospital officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the 16 deaths, Reuters news agency reported.

When the grate gave way, concert-goers plunged 20 meters, or 65 feet, into an underground parking area. It is not clear what caused the grate’s collapse.

South Korea is still recovering from the disastrous April 15 sinking of the ferry MV Sewal, which killed more than 300 people, mostly high school students.

That incident had sparked discussion of stricter regulatory oversight.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
