Celebrity Stand Collapses at Audi Launch

2008/11/14 Source

The launch ceremony of the new Audi A4, held on Thursday afternoon at the Olympic Hall in Seoul, was marred by the collapse of VIP stands near the stage. According to witnesses, the VIP seating stand collapsed at 8:10 p.m. when crowds swarmed towards the new Audi car as it appeared center stage.

Celebrities, including actresses Kim Hye-soo and Choi Kang-hee, and actors Jung Woo-sung, Lee Jung-jae and Ryoo Seung-bum, were sitting in the VIP area. Some escaped the site unharmed, but others sustained minor bruising.

An Audi official said, "We are aware that one of the guests was injured, but none of the celebrities needed hospital treatment as far as we know". A fireman said, "Two or three celebrities sustained light injuries, like scrapes". One witness said, "The VIP seats looked like they were made of wood, but I think the stand collapsed under the pressure of the stampede".
