Aftenposten.no reports that residents of the small community of Oltedal in western Norway were gathering to mourn the tragic deaths of a young local couple over the weekend. They apparently were asphyxiated in a bus while attending a rock music festival.
Terje Brueland, age 32 and Anita Wathne, age 31, had traveled to Kvinesdal on Norway's southwest coast to attend the Norway Rock Festival. They were staying with a group of friends from Oltedal on board the bus, which had been converted into a mobile home of sorts.
At around 2pm Saturday afternoon, some others came to check on those staying on the bus and found a tragic scene. Brueland and Wathne were dead, and eight others unconscious.
