Horrifying footage showed the moment a part of the football stand collapsed during the celebration of the Libyan Football Federation club fans after winning the league on Saturday.

The video shows the collapse of the stand, which was carrying a large number of fans amid the shouts of the audience.

The club’s fans flocked to the club’s headquarters, in the Bab Bin Ghashir neighborhood in Tripoli, to celebrate the team’s retention of the league title, according to local media.

The Libyan government’s emergency and ambulance service in Tripoli wrote on Facebook: “As a result of the heavy crowding of Al-Ittihad fans, part of the stadium collapsed.

Immediately, the emergency teams went to the place to treat the injured. We wish safety for everyone.”
