SK Safety Official Responsible For Concert Where 16 Fans Died Commits Suicide


A day after 16 died in an accident at a concert in South Korea, a man responsible for safety measures was found also dead, the country's semi-official news agency reported. It was an apparent suicide.

On Friday, a ventilation grate gave way, and more than two dozen people standing on it plunged some 20 meters (66 feet) -- or four stories -- into an underground parking structure below, a government accident response task force said.

In addition to the deaths, eleven people were injured, three seriously.

On Saturday, the body of the 37-year-old safety official was found on a street near his office, Yonhap news agency reported, citing police. They think he jumped to his death.

He left a brief message on his Facebook page. "I apologize to the victims. I'm sorry to my family."

About 700 people were attending the concert, which featured South Korean artists, including the popular all-female group 4Minute, Yonhap reported.
