Fence collapse injures security guard

A security guard is in an "extremely critical" condition after being injured during an incident at the flagship edition of the Ultra dance music festival in Miami this weekend. According to local media, Erica Mack is suffering from brain haemorrhaging and a broken leg after fans with no tickets pushed down a chain link fence to gain access to the Miami event on Friday. A representative from the local fire-rescue department told the Miami New Times: "She was doing what she was supposed to do, telling them to stop [trying to break into the site]. When they pushed [the fence] down and it fell on top of her... They just trampled her". Miami mayor Tomas Regalado told reporters "What happened this weekend is an event that could have been avoided. The organisers of Ultra did not follow the police directive to re-enforce the fence, even though they knew that this year, and the year before, some kids have tried to over run the fences" and says he now wants to stop the event.

At the 2013 edition of Ultra a section of an LED screen fell and injured two workers.
