A woman who attended British singer Robbie Williams’ concert in Sydney, Australia on Thursday died after falling down six rows of seats, a report in The Independent said. The unnamed woman, who was seven, was reportedly climbing over the chairs at the end of the show when she slipped and fell as thousands of fans rushed out of Allianz Stadium in Moore Park, Sydney, where the concert took place. The woman suffered serious head injuries after falling and was admitted to a local hospital in a “critical condition”, a statement from the New South Wales Ambulance Service said. The hospital said the woman was kept in an induced coma but died on Tuesday. “Instead of using the stairs, the woman tried to step over the rows of seats. She lost her footing and fell,” a stadium spokesman told the Sydney Morning Herald. “This is a terribly sad incident and our thoughts and wishes are with the patron and their family at this time,” the spokesman added. Williams has yet to comment on the incident, but took to X (formerly Twitter) to thank her fans who attended the concert. “Sydney: it was an unforgettable night, thank you – I love you Australia. Congratulations to Daniel and Lauren – I wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Rob x,” the singer wrote. Sydney: it was an unforgettable night, thank you – I love you Australia.

A 23-year-old fan died during a Taylor Swift concert in Rio de Janerio, Brazil on Friday from a suspected cardiac arrest. Swift later responded to the news on Instagram, saying she was “devastated” and “overwhelmed with grief” after the fan’s death.
