Fans blast lax security after girl is badly burned by flare at concert2/24/2013
A young woman attending the Soundwave Festival in Sydney was severely burned after a fan lit a flare in the mosh pit. The accident happened during a performance by heavy metal band Bring Me the Horizon; the girl’s forearm was severely burned, police say, possibly when the flare burned plastic that then fell on her. A second flare was also reportedly thrown onstage. Pissed-off music fans blasted both the "idiot" who lit the flare in a crowd and festival security, asking why hula hoops and Frisbees had been confiscated but flares were allowed through. An irate Soundwave promoter, AJ Maddah, told concertgoers to snap a photo of anyone seen with a flare and tweet it to him so he could share the image with police. [Source]
