Stones 'Saddened' By Crew Deaths

Two workers were killed dismantling the stage after a Rolling Stones 
concert in Madrid, local police have confirmed. 

Two other stage hands were injured in the accident at the Vicente 
Calderon stadium and are now in hospital. 

A spokesman for the British rock group said they were "deeply 
saddened" to hear the news. 

"Their heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery go out to the injured 
and their profound sympathies to the deceased," he continued. 

The fatal accident occurred on Friday during the dismantling of the 
Rolling Stones stage, following a concert given by the group on 
Thursday night. 

According to police, three of the workers fell 10m (33ft) from a 
metal structure and landed on a fourth. 

The dead workers were later named as Benno Goldewijk, 44, 
from Holland, and Spaniard Alfredo Pecina Matias, 38. 

The Rolling Stones, currently on the European leg of their A Bigger 
Band world tour, are due to play in El Eijido, Spain, this weekend.
