Christian Rock Band 'Starfield' Plays As The Floor Gives Way:
ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia — At least 39 people were injured, three of them seriously, when the floor of a local church filled with teens collapsed during a concert.
Police said about 1,000 youths were at the Central Heights Church in Abbotsford, British Columbia, to hear the Christian rock band Starfield when a large area in front of the stage gave way Friday night, sending people in the crowd falling several feet into the basement below.
By late evening, David Plug, a spokesman for the local health authority said 23 people were treated in the Abbotsford Regional Hospital, while hospitals in the nearby cities of Chilliwack, Mission and Langley treated 16 people between them.
A hole, more than 20 feet wide, opened up in the dance floor. At least one of the injured has been in an induced coma since Friday.
