A sudden, severe storm that swept through St. Louis on Saturday collapsed a large sports bar tent outside Busch Stadium, leaving one person dead and more than 100 injured.
The person who died apparently suffered a heart attack, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Seventeen of those injured were taken to a hospital, including the man who had the heart attack; four people sustained critical injuries, the paper said.
The tent had been set up as a beer garden next to Kilroy's Sports Bar, and a few hundred fans had gathered there to celebrate the St. Louis Cardinals' win over the Milwaukee Brewers earlier in the day, the Associated Press reported.
The incident happened about 3:50 p.m., about an hour after the baseball game had ended. A sudden gust lifted the tent, sending metal poles flying; afterward the tent lay collapsed against nearby railroad trestles, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
