The incident happened about 3:50 when sudden storms blew through the area, about one hour after the Cardinals game ended.

Witnesses said it lasted just several seconds, and estimated the wind to be between 60 and 80 miles per hour. A sudden gust lifted the tent up, sending metal poles flying and the tent to rest against some railroad tracks.

Patrons rushed to help each other, Randall said, including one man who administered CPR to another who had suffered a head wound.

"People were pushing and shoving," said Christy Eilermann, 42, of St. Louis. "The wind just picked up and they started dragging people inside."

Yeah, I live within the shadow of Budweiser Brewery & sirens went off twice! We had two HUGE storms with 2 hours of each other.

Lots of hail & winds, straight-lined. The man who died at Kilroy's had a heart attack, but there are many hurt & hospitalized.

This is not the first time this has happened and it won't be the last, debris and high winds are an accident waiting to happen. You can get killed in an open field when high winds are involved, you just have to have a little luck on your side.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
