The security guard’s partner, who died after being injured in a crowd crushing outside a London gig, pays tribute to ‘My Absolute World’.
Gabby Hutchinson, 23, died in hospital on Monday night, the second person to die following an incident last week at the O2 Academy in Brixton, south London.
Partner Phoebe Turley paid tribute to him on Facebook, saying, “I love you with all my heart.”
Hutchinson was working at O2 Thursday night when police were called after reports of “a large number of people trying to force their way into” the venue where Afro-pop artist Asake was performing.
After being crushed outside the venue, a total of eight people were taken to hospital for treatment, three of whom were said to be in serious condition.
Rebecca Icumero, a 33-year-old mother from Newham, east London, died on Saturday, leaving a 21-year-old in hospital.
In an initial press release, Metropolitan Police said a second woman had died after being crushed. Police later released her second statement on Monday night, updating her name and gender to those of her Gaby Hutchinson.
Superintendent Colin Wingrove, Chief of Police in Lambeth and Southwark, said: We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Gabby’s family during this unimaginably difficult time. “
Scotland Yard continues to work with Specialist Crime Command detectives to determine exactly what happened during the incident.
Officers are reviewing CCTV and phone footage, talking to witnesses, and conducting forensic investigations.
Police said there was “no evidence of foul play” by the officer who pushed the woman down the stairs.
Emergency services rushed to the scene and found dozens of people with “injuries apparently caused by crushing” on Thursday night.
Social media footage showed a large crowd gathering outside the venue and clashing with police.
Asa Akira’s concert was canceled due to an incident.
A woman hospitalized with suspected internal bleeding told the BBC the next day: thought she died. “
She added: I was so scared “
Asake wrote on social media on Friday: I hope you get well as soon as possible. We also approach individuals.
“While there is still no full explanation from the venue management themselves as to what caused the chaos at the entrance to Brixton Academy, we are grateful that all was peaceful in the end.
“I’m sorry it was cut short for those who enjoyed the beginning of my performance.”
