    What a tragedy - so sad. I've always had a slight phobia of walking on grates for this very reason.

    "A South Korean official handling safety measures at a concert where 16 people died apparently committed suicide hours after the tragedy, authorities said Saturday.


    The death of the 37-year-old local government official, surnamed Oh, was announced as South Korean police launched an investigation into Friday's incident at an outdoor pop concert in the city of Seongnam.


    "I am sorry for the dead victims... Please take a good care of my children", he wrote in a short message to his wife, according to officials."

    How awful... and the suicide just compounds it. Young people just out having a good time and it ends in such tragedy.

    Actually, 20-30 people were standing on the grate, according to one article.
