MIAMI (WTVJ) -- Three people have been taken to the hospital after a partial stage collapse at the site of the Ultra Music Festival in Bayfront Park, Miami Fire-Rescue said Thursday night.

Miami Fire-Rescue Capt. Bill Christopher told NBC News that a Jumbotron collapsed on the main stage at the south end of the park.

Some people were trapped in the partial stage collapse, and rescuers were taking victims to Ryder Trauma Center, Miami Fire-Rescue spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll said in an email.

Two of the people taken to the hospital had serious injuries, Christopher said.

A fourth person who was injured refused treatment on the scene, he added.

The 2013 festival is scheduled to begin Friday, with its first weekend running through Sunday, to be followed by a second weekend Friday, March 22 through Sunday, March 24.
