Fan Paralyzed In Concert Clash

A July 12th Bon Jovi concert in Edmonton, Alberta, may have ended long ago, but the show still resonates with one man who was injured and paralyzed during a scuffle.

Dennis Schulz was in the wrong place at the wrong time when a fight broke out between two men in the seats behind him at the Rexall Place arena.

A witness, Season Wandler, told the Edmonton Journal that one man pushed the other, who fell backward over a seat and landed on Schulz. Apparently no one was aware Schulz was injured during the commotion that followed.

"All the sudden, I looked down and I could see [Schulz] with his head totally leaned forward," Wandler said. "It looked unnatural. I thought he’d snapped his neck and was dead."

Despite the fracas, police weren’t called to the venue the night of the concert and called the incident a civil, rather than criminal, matter. No statements were taken following the fight and one of the men involved reportedly fled the scene.

Schulz has been hospitalized since the incident and isn’t able to eat, drink or move on his own. Doctors have also said that he won’t be able to return to his job as a journeyman machinist, according to the Journal.

Insurance adjusters for Northlands Park, which owns the arena, have reportedly met with Schulz and the company said in a statement that the incident that happened during the Bon Jovi concert is under investigation by the "appropriate parties."
