THE FIRST fatality in the ten-year history of the Pohoda music festival was reported on July 16 after the festival had officially ended, Trencín Police spokesperson Lenka Bušová told TASR.
The accident, in which a Czech company's worker died, occurred when individual stages were being dismantled. A part of one structure fell on a 21-year-old man from Prague, resulting in serious injuries. The man later died in the hospital. Police are currently investigating all the circumstances connected with the tragedy.
