Near Fatal Injuries From Falling Prop at Coachella

Sahara Tent

A member of public attending Coachella suffered head injuries after a prop globe fell from the temporary structure, overhead.

During the Gucci Gang performance held at the Sahara Tent, one of the hanging set pieces fell into the crowd. The globe decoration itself was made of thin plastic but the metal bracket attaching it to the ceiling of the temporary structure caused harm.

Several witnesses, along with the group in the same area where woman was struck, described the incident as surreal and terrifying. The woman, named Caroline, was happily dancing with a group of friends before the incident. It was also reported from her friend Kristen Messih that this was Caroline’s first music festival she’d been to.
