Live Nation, engineer charged in Radiohead stage collapse

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has laid 13 charges against three companies and one engineer in connection with the fatal stage collapse at an outdoor Radiohead concert in Toronto last summer.

A drum technician for the band was killed, and three others were injured, after a massive outdoor stage at Downsview Park partially collapsed hours before the popular U.K. band was to play for a sold-out crowd of 40,000 people.
