Video Fixture Falls at Miami Ultra Music Festival Site; 4 Workers Injured

By on March 21, 2013

The Miami-Dade County worker injury attorneys at Farah & Farah have learned that four workers were injured while setting up a giant LED screen at the site of the Ultra Music Festival last week. According to The Miami Herald, two of the workers suffered life-threatening injuries when the “jumbotron” fell on them and they were trapped beneath it.

The seriously injured men — one of whom reportedly suffered two broken legs — were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital. While those two were listed in serious condition, another worker was listed in stable condition and a fourth was treated at the scene and released.

A day after the tragic accident, Miami officials admitted that they had not inspected the site, but instead had relied on engineers hired by Ultra to do the inspections. In December of last year, the Miami city attorney determined that Miami didn’t need to issue a Temporary Use Permit for the festival, which would have required the city to send inspectors to the site.

The City Manager countermanded that decision and had city inspectors go to the site after the accident. Miami Fire officials and OSHA representatives were also on the scene. Fire officials eventually gave the “all-clear” and the site was completely opened to the public.

There were no further incidents during the festival.
