A fun night out with friends enjoying a concert and experiencing the music of the talented Ariana Grande turns deadly after an explosion just as the concert ends where over 21,000 fans were in attendance.
As the fans attempted to leave, it is reported that two loud explosions could be heard and the chaos began as crowds of people attempted to find safety. Reports of trampling have been made. Security officials attempted to calm and guide the stampede of concertgoers trying to exit the venue.
Medical professionals arrived on site after receiving over 200 calls from individuals inside the venue. They worked to remove injured individuals and transport them to six area hospitals, while parents and friends continued to search throughout the night for their loved ones.
This horrific incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack. The speculated number of injured is over 50, while the number of lives senselessly taken is 22.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to all of those impacted by this devastating event.
