Tavas, Turkey

The deputy head of the branch of the opposition Republican People's Party, Mehmet Palaz, died when the balcony collapsed during the celebration of the election victory.

A day earlier, it was learnt that Kadir Tatik, a member of the Republican People's Party, won the elections in Tavas district. His supporters celebrated the victory on the street in front of the party building. The incident which occurred in the Turkish city of Denizli also left seven others injured.

The accident occurred overnight as party members and supporters gathered to celebrate the victory of Kadir Tatik in his campaign for the local municipality head's office, after preliminary results of the election were announced.

Footage from the scene shows multiple party members gathered on a balcony of a building, with a crowd of onlookers cheering them on outside. The balcony is seen abruptly collapsing, coming clean off the rest of the structure.

According to Milliyet, when some people climbed to the second floor of the building, one of the balconies collapsed. As a result, eight people were injured, three of them in serious condition.

When the balcony collapsed, Mehmet Palaz injured his head. He was hospitalised in the city hospital in Pamukkale. He died on April 1.

Local elections in Turkey were held on March 31. In many major cities, including Ankara and Istanbul, opposition representatives won majorities.

Look how much weight was concentrated on that thin concrete ledge. These types of videos are excellent teachers to recognize otherwise subtle dangers in society.
