Two dead after seven-storey fall at Abba tribute concert

Two people have died and another has been injured after a person fell seven floors at a concert hall in Sweden, writes BBC.

Around 1,000 people had gathered at the Uppsala Konsert & Kongress hall near the capital, Stockholm, for an Abba tribute concert on Tuesday evening. But 30 minutes before the show was due to begin, a person fell and landed in the open foyer on the ground floor.

They landed on two people, police said. The person who fell died as did one of the people they hit. The third person was left with non-life threatening injuries and has since been taken to hospital.

None of the victims have been named by police.

The concert hall was initially closed by police so witnesses at the scene could be questioned.
