A freak accident


A human tower team member has been killed and two others injured in a freak accident in Spain.
The 51-year-old man died when he was crushed by a metal structure which was being dismantled in his team’s Tarragona training room.
His two colleagues, aged 50 and 52, were rushed to hospital, one of them in a serious condition.
The main human tower competition for Tarragona takes place each October and attracts thousands of spectators.
Police said the fatal accident happened when the three men were dismantling the very heavy metal training structure which had been supporting a safety net. For some unknown reason, it collapsed on top of them.
Emergency medics tried without success to revive the fatally injured man. The other two suffered severe bruising but were said to be conscious throughout the rescue.
