Five people were injured today during Selena Gomez‘s Emerald Square Mall appearance, according to North Attleborough Police. Police and firefighters arrived at the Emerald Square Mall shortly after 4 PM when an escalator stopped short, flinging some people backwards.
Five people were treated for minor injuries, three of who were transported to Sturdy Memorial Hospital, Fire Lieutenant Jeffery Badger said. The tragic incident took place during a question and answer session by Selena. A thorough investigation of the cause of the escalator defect will be conducted Tuesday, overcrowding is a possible cause.
From Kerri: After the concert about 50 people came out to see Selena, we got kicked to the sidewalks by security, and she finally came out. I think she may have been shocked with the amount of people still outside she stopped and waved for a while. She rolled down her car window and was hanging out the window waving and thanking everyone. Out of Miley, Demi and Selena, I honestly would have to say Selena was the nicest Disney princess that I have met.
