    One dead, 60 injured at Big Valley Jamboree

    One dead, 60 injured at BVJ

    News of horror at the Big Valley Jamboree.

    The main stage collapsed just as Billy Currington was wrapping up his set. Emergency crews are on scene tending to the injured- we have no official word on casualties at this time. We do know that Edmonton Fire Rescue is sending help to BVJ.

    Country singer Jessie Farrell gave us a dramatic account of the scene at the Big Valley Jamboree. "I finished my set and then Billy Currington went up. He was on the last song, and the whole - we're in the dark right now because there's no power, thousands of people, in the trade centre, in the dark, and we're all soaking wet - and his whole band- the whole stage collapsed on them and pieces started flying everywhere- poles started flying everywhere, they can't find their bass player and Billy Currington was hit in the head with a pole."

    Farrell adds security on site is telling her that lots of security, attendees and musicians are unaccounted for.

    Camrose RCMP are not commenting at this time, but reports are now that one person is dead and at least 60 trapped. (jc,cs,blb)

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
