For example, friends Pavla, Věra and Veronika came all the way from Kopřivnice to the Havířovské festivities. “We are disappointed, but what can be done. But it goes without saying that we cannot rejoice here when others are injured in the hospital,” says Pavla.

When the news about the end of the festivities spread among the people waiting before entering the area, they quickly called their friends who were just heading to Havířov to meet them. “They even came from Germany. Not directly at the festivities, but they are here to see their family and so they wanted to go to a concert. Well, there’s nothing we can do,” said the woman.

The investigation into the carousel accident continues. The stars of the festivities expressed their support

Vladimír, looking rocker, drinks beer from a cup and watches the commotion that takes place in the parking lot where the carousel stands and the exit from the complex. “Well, it’s bad luck. We were looking forward to the Coats, but of course in this situation I’m not surprised that they ended the festivities. That’s understandable,” he says. His friend Magda says that now everyone should think about the injured, so that they recover as quickly as possible.

Arguing and shouting

But not everyone was so understanding. “Hey, dude, I gotta go get drunk somewhere. They normally canceled it,” shouted a forty-year-old man on the phone, informing an acquaintance about what had happened. The people at the mobile ticket offices, who exchanged tickets for people’s wristbands, also had to endure abuse.

“I do not care. It happened here, but the music is over there. Why can’t it be?” shouted a young man of about twenty-five from the crowd.

Mayor Josef Bělica told journalists that the city will return the money to the people, that within a few days they will contact the public via social networks and local television and confirm this information.
