Sad news out of Miami, as 4 people aiding in the setup of the mainstage at UMF Miami have been injured, with two men in critical condition. Another is in the hospital as well, but stable. A 4th was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Since the accident occurred, Ultra has released this statement:

Today (Thursday, March 14) as preparations were being made for this weekend’s Ultra Music Festival, a section of an LED screen fell and injured two workers. Fire Rescue was on site so there was a rapid response. Festival organizers are working with, and supporting, authorities as they investigate the details behind the accident.

Miami Fire-Rescue spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll made this statement on how the city of Miami and the festival organizers would proceed:

“And right now we’re going to suspend any of the building on that stage until daylight, where we can be out here with structural engineers, OSHA as well, and then the fire marshal’s staff, to make sure that this stage and all the other stages are going to be safe for the Ultra Fest,” Carroll said.

Updates will be made to this post as they become available. We wish a speedy and full recovery to those affected, and our thoughts and prayers are with the friends, families, and coworkers of those affected.
