BREAKING: Over 260 injured in pier collapse in Spain

According to reports, over 260 people have been injured in a pier collapse in Spain. Five people are said to be in a serious condition.

Local government said people are being treated for a variety of injuries including broken legs, broken arms and head injuries.

It is believed the pier collapsed into the sea at midnight at the O Marisquiño festival in Vigo.

A local newspaper said the pier collapsed just as musician Rels B took to the stage at the musical festival.

A 16-year-old concert goer told Spanish publication Faro de Vigo: “We were on the walkway when it opened up. I fell on people and people fell on me. I was hit on the head and then some sort of container fell as well. I tried to get out and someone helped me.”

Another described the incident as “the worst moment of my life.”

A full investigation is already underway.

More to follow.
