French singer Barbara Weldens gets electrocuted and dies on stage during concert
French singer Barbara Weldens has collapsed mid-concert with one report suggesting she may have been electrocuted. The 35-year-old singer, who released her debut album in February, was on stage for the Festival Léo Ferré in the Church of the Cordeliers in the village of Goudron in the Lot region in south-west France.
As she was singing, the singer suffered an apparent cardiac arrest. She had a camera on stage and sung barefoot and it is speculated that she may have touched an electric device that was live on stage, as La Depeche reports. Anyway police have begun investigating the cause of her death and have refused to speculate on the circumstances.
The festival has now been cancelled.
