Adele forced to stop performance as fan collapses from heart attack

Adele had to stop her Sydney concert after a fan collapsed with a cardiac arrest.

The Grammy winner was forced to halt the performance when a 47-year-old woman suffered the heart condition and emergency services were called.

More than 95,000 fans had made their way to the ANZ stadium last night and had to clear a path to allow paramedics to get to the ill woman.

According to Mail Online, the fan was taken to a local hospital in a serious condition, and Adele seemed upset about what had happened.

Eyewitness Meg Rylance told the site that she was sitting in the next row from the woman.

“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’.

“She actually seemed really tearful,” the concert-goer added.

Initially it was thought the woman had suffered some kind of spinal injury, because paramedics had brought a stretcher into the arena with them.

But Ms Rylance said nobody had paid the situation any attention until Adele stopped the show shortly before launching into Rolling In The Deep.

The singer apologised to the enormous crowd and insisted on starting part of her set again – similar to how she restarted her tribute to George Michael at the Grammy Awards last month after realising she was out of tune.
