A Series of Fortuitous Events

At least 19 are confirmed dead along with 50 others injured as a result of a bombing in Manchester Arena in England where Ariana Grande was performing on Monday night, according to the Greater Manchester Police.

Hundreds of traumatized fans fled the scene, many of them children.

The incident, which occurred before 10:35 pm, is being treated as a terrorist attack until proven otherwise, Manchester police said through twitter. Investigators are considering the possibility that the explosion may have in fact been a suicide bombing, according to a Western and US law enforcement official.

The incident took place as people were leaving the concert, taking place outside the venue in public space.

Social media broadcasted the commotion and panic within the arena. Ivo Delgado, a witness, told CNN that he had heard an explosion as the concert was ending. He also reported seeing smoke within the main corridor.
