ST. LOUIS, MO -- One person has died and more than a dozen were taken to a hospital with injuries after high winds blew over a beer tent near Busch Stadium.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the man who died suffered a heart attack during the commotion when a sudden storm blew through around 3:50 p.m. today.
The tent was set up next to Kilroy's Sports Bar, where St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson says a few hundred people were celebrating after the Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers earlier in the afternoon.
Kilroy's owner Art Randall says things were flying through the air sideways and metal chairs were being flung across the beer garden by the storm.
Emergency officials say 16 people were taken to hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to very serious. KSDK reports that fire officials say five people were in critical condition and 100 people were treated at the scene.
