A second person has died after a stage being erected for an upcoming Madonna concert collapsed at the Velodrome in Marseilles, France, according to the AP. A British worker died today from injuries sustained in the accident, following the immediate death of a French worker yesterday. Eight other injuries are being reported, including one American. Madonna has canceled her performance in Marseilles, which was scheduled for Sunday as part of her Sticky and Sweet tour. No reason for the accident has yet been reported. 

“My prayers go out to those who were injured and their families along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news,” Madonna said in a statement issued by her representative, Liz Rosenberg, according to CNN.
