The three members of popular Canto-pop band Grasshopper were among nine people injured when a hydraulic stage they were standing on suddenly tilted during rehearsal at the Hong Kong Coliseum in Hung Hom on Friday.

The trio – Calvin Choy Yat-chi, his brother Remus Choy Yat-kit, and Edmond So Chi-wai – and six female dancers were slightly injured in the incident, according to a source with knowledge of the case. “When the stage was tilting to one side, they slipped and fell on to the stage floor,” the source said.

Calvin Choy Yat-chi went to hospital by himself before paramedics arrived. He is understood to have been discharged after treatment and returned home. Two of the six female dancers were bandaged by paramedics at the scene and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Yau Ma Tei for treatment.

The source said the other six injured, including Remus Choy Yat-kit and Edmond So Chi-wai, did not need hospital treatment. Police were investigating the cause of the incident. The members of Grasshopper were guests for a concert to be given by singer-songwriter Andrew Lam Man-chung on Friday night.
