At least seven people attending a wedding reception were injured when the ceiling located in an event hall collapsed at the Crown Paradise Hotel, located in the northern hotel zone of Puerto Vallarta.
The cause of the collapsed ceiling is unknown, as well as whether Civil Protection authorities had previously reviewed the structure of the site. However, the initial assessment indicates vibration from the sound equipment caused the drop-ceiling to collapse on the dance floor during the wedding party.
Of the injured, all of them from Leon, at least two were seriously injured but not life-threatening. After the accident, the celebration was canceled and the location closed by the Civil Protection authorities.
