In Mol, Belgium, 20 people were injured in an accident involving garlands being fired in the direction of high-voltage cables. Three victims are still in hospital as of today, May 21. The incident took place during the championship celebration of a local hockey team.

When the high-voltage cables were hit by the garlands, the electricity was conducted downwards via the iron fence around the site where onlookers were standing. The electricity also traveled to the canteen and the changing rooms where people that were showering were electrocuted.
