    TORONTO - (AP) -- Toronto paramedics say one person is dead and another is seriously hurt after a stage collapsed while setting up for a Radiohead concert.

    They say two other people were injured and are being assessed.

    Some at Downsview Park ahead of the show are saying on Twitter that the area has been cleared by emergency crews.

    The venue said on its website that the concert has been canceled.

    Not a fan. Grounds hadn't opened to the public.

    don't think it was a fan, i think it was crew, and wasn't this in the daytime before the concert was to begin?

    yeah, it's actually pretty fucked up over here right now. if it had happened during or even right before or after the show, I can't imagine the scene.
    45,000 people out at a public park...

    everyone would have been trampled, and right now I'm in shock, I was literally walking out my front door and ciara texted me that photo

    Jesus. I can't imagine how bad it would have been had the crowd been in there.

    my condolences to my adorable girlfriend who was going to get to see them for the first time outdoors on a perfect evening.

    as an emergency b-plan we're grabbing a bottle of wine and heading down to yonge/dundas to see either the flaming lips, or the gigantic crowd of disappointed radiohead fans dejectedly crowding the square.

    That fan who rolled her eyes when she found out someone got hurt should have been bitch slapped soon after
