Attending a concert is a huge deal to many individuals. It’s where they can go and forget about the real world for a couple of hours and just sing their hearts out.

Sadly, this was not the case for the audience attending a showing of Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Women Tour at the Manchester Arena in England. As spectators were leaving, a bomb exploded outside. Authorities were called to the scene at about 10:35 p.m. The horrific occasion is being treated as a terrorist attack and police are advising that everyone stay away from the area.

    Karen Ford told BBC that after the bomb went off, “Everyone was trying to push people up the stairs. There were a lot of children there without parents. There was no one to calm them down so everyone was just screaming, crying and pushing.”

This event has also affected the Victoria Train Station, since the arena sits on top of it. The station has been evacuated and trains are not running.

     Representatives of the star have confirmed that Ariana Grande is okay. As of right now, 22 people have been reported dead and about 50 more are injured. Distraught families have started seeking help on social media sites, such as Twitter and Instagram, in order to find their loved ones.
