Witnesses say a 62 year old man that was a motorbike taxi driver, Mohammad Poksakul, sat near the stage and when a 60 kph wind gust pushed the canopy sideways, it forced the 10m tall speaker tower over, which in-turn, fell on to him and killed him.
|The victim lies covered-up, stage canopy at right, stage left speaker tower in background.|
|Toppled Speaker Tower at Stage Left - Note lightweight scaffold framing.|
The base does not appear to haven any anchor plates.
|View of Stage Right Canopy Supports - Note that they only provide vertical support - no lateral stabilizers, the base was not anchored to the ground. The orange straps appear to have been guy-lines that tore loose from their attachment points.|
