About this single
Serious accident at Zurich Opera House: During stage dismantling, an element weighing several hundred kilos came loose and buried three employees under it.
The Zurich Opera House staff were in the process of rebuilding the stage after the morning rehearsal for the play «Turandot» for the evening performance of Mozart’s «Don Giovanni» when the accident happened: by human mistake, a bridge, weighing several hundred kilograms, broke loose in the afternoon around 3 p.m. and fell from the stage onto the lower stage, where it met a sound technician and two lighting technicians.
The injured were two men aged 26 and 31 and a 29-year-old woman, Rheia. The two men have been able to leave the hospital following outpatient treatment. Rheia’s injuries were worse. She had a near-death experience with unimaginable pain. The pain remained long and it took her soul to reunite but she made it.
