Adele halts Sydney show to check on injured fan who collapsed in the crowd

Adele is always looking out for her fans and her sold-out show in Sydney was no different after she halted her performance when a woman collapsed in the crowd.

The Hello singer was entertaining 95,000 fans at the ANZ stadium on Friday night when a woman collapsed and had to be taken to hospital.

Apologising to the crowd, Adele made sure to halt her performance to check that her fan received the help she needed.

‘She [Adele] stopped the concert and she was like ”I’m so sorry but someone got hurt and I have to check they’re okay”,’ Meg Rylance, who was sat in the next row from where the female collapsed, told Daily Mail Australia.

‘She actually seemed really tearful,’ she added.

According to the website, the crowd in the VIP area were told to keep out of the aisles so medical staff could rush to the aid of the unwell woman – who was carried off in a stretcher.

Rylance added: ‘We were in the next row and saw at least four cops there, but no one really noticed when it happened until Adele brought it to our attention.

‘It all happened just before ”Rolling in the Deep”.

NSW Ambulance told Daily Mail Australia they were called to Edwin Flack Avenue at Sydney Olympic Park at 9.35pm after ‘someone collapsed from a cardiac arrest’.

They could not confirm whether the incident happened inside the stadium, but said the victim was taken to Westmead Hospital.
