One person has died and five others have been injured after a fall out a second story window in Blacksburg, VA during a Death By Stereo house show. Reports say that the victims were trying a "Wall Of Death" and fell out the window of the house onto the concrete patio 20 feet below.
Daniel J. Martin, 19, of Emerald Isle, N.C., died at Montgomery Regional Hospital from injuries suffered in the fall. Jason Kontkanen, 21, was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with serious injuries, and four others were treated at Montgomery Regional Hospital.
UPDATE: Frank writes "I just wanted to help get things straight. I was at the DBS show last night and the horrible events that took place happened right in front of me. Â There was no "wall of death" or at least that's not what caused what happened.Â The room was overcrowded, and there were people dancing in the middle of the room and the crowd just shifted. Everyone that was at the outer edge of the room was pinned against the wall and people were pinned against a window and it gave way.Â I'm just sending this because it's awful about what happened and it shouldn't be blamed on hardcore dancing or people being stupid or anything like that.Â It was just an awful tragedy."
