Two people were killed yesterday while constructing the stage for Madonna’sstage show in France.  Authorities say that a crane fell after the partially built roof collapsed, killing one person at the scene. A second man died in the hospital after being in intensive care.  Reports say that at least eight other crew members were seriously injured in the accident and 30 more slightly injured.

Madonna released a statement saying she was “devastated”. She also added“my prayers go out to those who were injured and their families, along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news.”

Authorities say that the roof was being constructed by cranes when it became unstable and collapsed.  Many people were able to escape and therefore avoided injury.  The now canceled concert was going to be held at Velodrome stadium in Marseilles.

At a concert in Italy last night, Madonna paid tribute to those killed.  She stopped her perform to say to the crowd I ask you for a moment to stop and think of the people who have lost their lives, we need to appreciate life, the people we love and our families.”
