Amiens stadium barrier collapses, 29 remain in hospital

Amiens stadium barrier collapses, 29 remain in hospital

Paris: At least three fans were seriously injured when a barrier collapsed at the front of a stand during a French soccer match.

Horrific footage from the scene shows hundreds of fans piling on top of one another as the barrier gave way, with Lille fans higher in the stand desperately trying to pull people up to safety.

Lille had opened the scoring in the 15th minute and fans behind the goal had surged forward to celebrate when the fence collapsed under the pressure, spilling fans onto the field at the Amiens ground. "The investigation will determine the causes of this incident". All but six - five Lille fans and a steward - were able to go home overnight.

Their 12,000-capacity Stade de la Licorne is the smallest of the 20 Ligue 1 clubs.

"The Amiens President's words seem irresponsible and insensitive given the nature of this dramatic situation". The football club hopes to find the person responsible for the stadium to be in such a state during a match, "said the angry CEO of the guests Mark Ingla".

Lille supporters fall onto the field after midfielder Ibrahim Amadou scored against Amiens.

Amiens said in a statement: "Amiens and its leadership wants to express its solidarity with the injured Lille supports and their family and assure that their health is more important than anything else".
