‘He landed in the row in front of us’

Harry Styles fans were left “traumatised” after a man plunged “head first” from the balcony during a show last night.

Fans attending the Harry Styles show at the Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow last night (June 11) were left heartbroken after a man fell over the balcony.

According to the Daily Record, fan Tracy Brown said that she heard a crack as the man hit the ground.

After finally making it into the stadium, with numerous outlets reporting enormous queues, Harry Styles fans settled in for the show. But towards the end, at the Club Deck above the main stand, a man fell “head first” into the crowd below.

His condition is not currently known.

“We were directly facing the stage,” Tracy, a Pharmacist from Rutherglen said. “We were in row F, on the second level, underneath the Club Deck, a bit towards the right.”

She continued: “He just came flying down from the Club Deck above and landed in the row right in front of us, there were people all round about.

“People were throwing water over and then everyone screamed and jumped back.

“I heard the thud and my daughter told me what had happened. Straight away someone started doing CPR on him.

“He landed in the row in front of us, I was trying to shield the kids from it – I thought he was dead.

“I was only four from the end of the row, and as I’m a Pharmacist I thought I’d go and do anything I could to help.”

Tracy had to get security herself, having run down “two main sets of stairs” to find them “basically standing outside Ibrox.”

“They ran and followed me and eventually there were about six security people there working on him,” she noted, adding that dozens of fans were left visibly distressed.

“I had kids with me who were 13, 14, and 15. We were shaking and crying, everyone was traumatised,” she continued. “Everyone was trying to help one another. Sometimes you see videos of things like this and people with phones are standing filming it, but there was none of that.”

Commenting on the incident, a police spokesperson said: “Officers were made aware of a man falling from a club deck at a premises on Edmiston Drive, Glasgow at around 10.15pm on Saturday, 11 June, 2022.

“There were no suspicious circumstances and the man was seen to by medical staff.”
