Dozens injured as nightclub ceiling collapses in Madrid

A ceiling has collapsed at a nightclub in Madrid, injuring 26 people, Spanish authorities said.

Emergency services for the Spanish capital say 11 of the injured revellers were taken to nearby hospitals to be treated for “bruises and light wounds.”

The others were treated on site. 

Emergency services said a section of the ceiling measuring 16 square metres (about 170 square feet) fell on the people at the nightclub.

Arturo de Blas, who led the emergency response, said the “ceiling in the second floor fell on top of the people inside.”
