A Shot from Liverpool's Peter Beardsley hit the bar
Hillsborough Stadium, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom
The police at first attempted to stop fans from spilling out of the pens, some believing this to be a pitch invasion. At approximately 3:04 pm, a shot from Liverpool's Peter Beardsley hit the bar. Possibly connected to the excitement, a surge in pen 3 caused one of its metal crush barriers to give way.
