A 23-year-old female security guard, Gabriella Hutchinson, has lost her life following the injuries she sustained in a crush outside a concert by Nigerian Afrobeats singer Asake in London, police in the British capital said Monday.
It was gathered that the victim, who was working as a contracted security provider at the concert, died on Monday at the hospital four days after the incident on Thursday night.
Hutchinson became the second victim who lost her life in the incident after 33-year-old Rebecca Ikumelo died on Saturday.
The Metropolitan Police disclosed that a third woman, 21, who was still receiving treatment, was in critical condition.
Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove, policing commander for Lambeth and Southwark, said, “It is devastating news that a second person has lost their life following the events on Thursday.
“I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to Gabrielle’s family at this unimaginably difficult time.”
