Another Concert Accident Injures Keith Urban Fans

Keith Urban played the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas last Wednesday (8/16/11), and the evening nearly ended in tragedy when two fans leaned on a railing and it gave way. 

Luckily the drop was only about 4 feet. The two Wichita fans were treated by EMS workers and luckily didn't suffer any major injuries.  The fans were sitting in a front row area and fell the 4 feet to the area main floor.

The arena's general manager says that the railing was bolted down, but the railing in that particular spot isn't permanent since they move things around depending on the event taking place at the arena.

A similar incident happened in 2009 when Keith played Memphis, Tennessee. Fans leaned a little too hard on the railing and it gave way sending several people tumbling down.  That time fans actually fell on Keith.
