An elderly woman is dead after suffering a fall at a Robbie Williams concert last week in Sydney.
The 70-year-old concert fan, who has not been publicly named, died Monday night following several days of hospitalization, a spokesperson for St. Vincent’s Hospital confirmed to The Guardian.
The woman was in the upper level of seating at Allianz Stadium in Moore Park last Thursday when she fell down six rows, a hospital spokesperson told the outlet. The accident occurred as she was leaving the stadium shortly after 10 p.m. local time, a spokesperson for the hospital told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
In the estimated five minutes it took on-site paramedics to arrive to the aid of the woman, she was helped by a stadium staffer and guest, who is a medical professional, as stadium operator Venues NSW told ABC.
“This is a terribly sad incident and our thoughts and wishes are with the patron and their family during this time,” a representative for Venues NSW said Friday.
NSW Ambulance, which was called to the scene within about 15 minutes of the fall, treated the woman “for head injuries before transporting her to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition,” a spokesperson for the emergency service told the outlet.
The woman was hospitalized within about an hour of the fall and ultimately placed in an induced coma.
At the time of publication, the British singer, 49, has not yet spoken out about the fatal accident.
The bizarre and devastating incident at Williams’ concert occurred the same day that a Taylor Swift fan died at her Eras Tour show in Rio de Janeiro amid an extreme heat wave in the Brazilian city.
Ana Clara Benevides Machado, 23, fell ill while awaiting the Grammy winner’s show Friday night, as others fainted. Many fans claimed they weren’t allowed to bring water into the Nilton Santos Stadium. The young fan was transported to Salgado Filho Municipal Hospital in cardiorespiratory arrest and ultimately died there.
A “devastated” Swift, 33, took to her Instagram story that evening to say that though she had “very little information” about what had transpired, she would not “be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.”
Swift extended her sympathies to the young woman’s loved ones, noting: “This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
The unforgiving temperatures prompted the “Cruel Summer” singer to postpone Saturday’s show, as she cited the need to prioritize “the safety and well being of my fans, fellow performers and crew.”
