MIAMI (AP) - Event organizers say a large LED screen being set up for the Ultra Music Festival collapsed in downtown Miami, injuring several people.

Fire rescue workers responded to Bayfront Park Thursday evening and took two victims to a nearby trauma center. An event spokeswoman says that the accident occurred during preparations for the festival.

Lt. Ignatius Carroll Jr., a Miami fire and rescue spokesman, said one worker was in critical condition, another serious. A third had minor injuries. Carroll said the LED screens were about 30 feet above the stage when one crashed down on the stage.

The annual outdoor electronic music festival is set to begin Friday and run over two weekends. Among those scheduled to perform are David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Avicii and Snoop Lion, who was formerly known as Snoop Dogg.
