Report: 1 dead after tent collapses in storm

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis media outlets are reporting one person has been killed and up to 100 were hurt when high winds knocked down a large tent south of Busch Stadium.

KSDK reports five people were in critical condition Saturday afternoon after tent at Kilroy's bar collapsed during a thunderstorm that blew through the area.

The report says the St. Louis Fire Department transported 17 people to a hospital, and 100 received medical treatment at the scene.

KMOX reports St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson says a few hundred people were celebrating in the tent after the Cardinals' victory over the Milwaukee Brewers when the storm hit.
