Destra Garcia breaks ankle in stage fall


HAMILTON, Bermuda, Aug 03 2017 –  Trinidadian soca star Destra Garcia has reportedly broken an ankle after falling from a stage during her performance at a concert here late Wednesday.

According to an eyewitness, the 38-year-old performer slipped between the stage and a speaker during the Summer Splash concert ahead of Bermuda’s two-day national Cup Match holiday.

While she had earlier placed a foot on a speaker during the show, she fell attempting to do so again, bringing her performance to a halt, the witness said.

“It looked like she might have hit her head as well,” the witness told the Royal Gazette newspaper.

“She was down for about 20 minutes before they took her away on a stretcher. It was scary.”

Known as the Queen of Bacchanal, Garcia was joined by a number of other stars at the concert, including Jamaican dancehall artiste Sean Paul.
