Brixton Academy: Three women still critical after Asake concert crush

Three women remain in a critical condition after being injured in a crush at a gig at the Brixton O2 Academy that left several others hurt.

The concert, by Afro-pop singer Asake, had to be abandoned part-way through. A “large number of people” tried to force their way inside, the Met Police said. Social media footage shows people screaming, shouting and struggling.

One of the crush victims said: “I couldn’t breathe and I completely passed out. I thought I was dead.” The woman, who was taken to hospital from the venue on Thursday night with suspected internal bleeding, said: “I took my last breath and I could not get any more oxygen. I was so scared.”

All three of those in critical condition are women, aged 21, 23 and 33 years, police said.

Their next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
