Tragic Incident in San Luis Potosí, Mexico: 3 Dead, 16 Injured, Performance Cancelled

On the night of Friday, June 7, 2024, a tragic accident occurred at the Rich Bar in Plaza Altus, San Luis Potosí, Mexico. A glass railing collapsed from a height of 12 meters, leading to the deaths of three young people and injuring 16 others. The venue was overcrowded with attendees waiting for the performance of Kevin Moreno, a singer from Culiacán, Sinaloa.

Witnesses described the venue as being packed, with many people gathered in the corridors outside the bar, putting excessive pressure on the glass railings. The railings gave way, causing the attendees to fall from the third floor into the bar below.

Emergency services quickly arrived at the chaotic scene, where some victims were severely injured and others experienced nervous breakdowns. Five of the injured were reported to be in critical condition. The area was cordoned off by security personnel, and by the following morning, the venue was closed by authorities. Due to the severity of the incident, the performance by Kevin Moreno was cancelled.

This tragic event highlights the critical need for strict adherence to safety regulations in public venues, especially those hosting large crowds. As investigations into the cause of the collapse continue, authorities are urging all event organizers to review and reinforce their safety protocols to prevent such devastating incidents in the future.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.
