A second worker has died of his injuries after a stage collapsed while it was being built for a Madonna concert in Marseille, France.
Hospital officials said on Friday that Charles Prow, a 23-year-old British technician, had died overnight after an accident in the Stade Véelodrome.
French worker, Charles Criscenzo, 53, was killed on Thursday when the roof of the stage knocked over a crane that was lifting it into place, and the crane fell onto the stage. At least 10 other people were injured, and the concert, scheduled for Sunday, was canceled.
At a performance in Udine, Italy, Madonna called the men’s deaths “a great tragedy.” “I just want to take a moment to acknowledge and pay tribute to two people who lost their lives today,” she said.
