Barcelona Baseball Venue Accident


DSCF1434.JPGNot for sure if any of you have read about the ballpark disaster in Barcelona and Sant Boi that happened over the weekend.  Reports are still not 100% clear but its reported that 3 people died and unfortunately they were children. 16 others were injured. 

The kids were planning to play a baseball game. Weather turned bad quick and they ran for cover inside the batting tunnel that collapsed on them due to high winds. It was a concrete block structure with a metal awaning.

The photo above is the building from how I remember seeing the batting tunnel at the baseball venue during a recent tournament… and this is a Reuters photo taken by Albert G. of the same building that shows the damage.  

Regardless its a tragic accident.

I knew of the accident, but did not know the total extent of the damage. Thank you for posting this so we can get a better understanding of what happened down there.

I am sorry to hear of three deaths in the incident. I just hope the injured and their families are coping and the community is behind all of them in the recovery.
