Death By Stereo show ends in tragedy



A Death By Stereo show in Blacksburg, Virgina turned tragic yesterday when six people fell from a third-story window at Blacksburg duplex. Apparently some sixty people were inside the building during the show when some attendees became too rowdy (reportedly partaking in the "wall of death") and a window gave way, causing the people who were being pushed against the window to fall roughly 20 feet to a concrete patio below. Two people were airlifted to nearby hospitals, including a 19-year-old Virginia Tech student who later died. Several others were also injured during the fall. The duplex, often referred to as the Solar Haus, is frequently used as a venue for small musical events. The fire marshal and a local building inspector are currently investigating.
