This is just terrible.

At least 16 people are dead today after an accident at a 4Minute concert.

The K-pop stars were performing to a packed audience of 700 at a festival in Seongnam, South Korea on Friday when some of the crowd climbed onto a structure to get a better view.

Unfortunately, that structure was a ventilation grate, and under the weight of all those people, it collapsed.

The concertgoers fell as far as 33 feet down a concrete shaft.

According to Korean authorities, at least 16 people have died so far, with eleven more being seriously injured. According to one fireman:

"Twelve people were killed at the scene, two others were killed while they were being rushed to the hospital. Others are assumed to have passed away while receiving medical treatment."

Authorities expect the death toll to rise over the next few days.

Our prayers go out to their families.
