Balcony collapse on Castle Street at Six60 gig

It’s the worst. It’s not something you ever want to experience or have anyone else experience, but it has happened. We often see students hanging out on roofs and balconies during parties, but this evening, during a Six60 gig on Castle Street, a balcony collapsed. Many people were hurt and nine seriously enough to be taken to hospital.

There’s been plenty of news and social media posting about the accident which I’ve collected here in this Storify.

I sincerely hope that everyone who has been injured will recover quickly and that they receive the support they need. Please get in touch with OUSA and Student Health Services if you need to, and do check in with your families.
