Fatal wind gusts

1:47 pm on 29 April 2012

Sudden winds in St Louis, Missouri, USA blew over a tent outside a sports stadium killing at least one person and injuring about 100 others.

The tent had been set up as a beer garden.

A man who was under the tent when it collapsed, had a heart attack and died.

The incident happened about 3.50pm on Saturday, just after the St Louis Cardinals baseball game ended.

Witnesses said a sudden gust lifted the tent, sending metal poles flying.
