A 12-member boy band called Mirror was performing at the Hong Kong Coliseum on Thursday night (July 28) when a giant video monitor (4m x 4m) crashed onto the stage. At least one dancer was directly hit. Two members were injured.
Surgeons are working on one of the dancers, Mo Lee Kai-yin, in hopes he’ll be able to walk again. The impact dislocated a couple of vertebrae, making it impossible to move his limbs. His lungs and his head were also injured. A family member is being flown from Canada.
Another member, Chang Tsz-fung, was treated and released from hospital.
Here’s another look.
An investigation has been opened by local authorities to find out what happened. A preliminary look indicates at one of the two metal cords holding up the monitor somehow snapped in the middle of the performance. Fingers are already being pointed.
