In a video posted on social media, you can see how at one point the highest part of the crowded grandstand collapses from a height of several meters, and dozens of people fall with it. About 650 people were present in the synagogue during the incident.

The accident happened a few weeks after 45 ultra-Orthodox Jews were killed and trampled and strangled by a crowd on Mount Meron in Galilee during a festival celebration.
