New Orleans officials confirmed a man was fatally struck by another tandem float with three sections during the Endymion parade.

The accident happened at Canal and Galvez streets, Ferguson said.

A city agency tasked with emergency preparedness tweeted that the death occurred Saturday night as the popular parade of the Krewe of Endymion was rolling. Floats after that, including the one that ran over the man - float No. 14 - will be redirected to another area.

Almost all of Endymion's 37 floats are tandems.

Other people frantically tried to alert the driver and float riders of the incident, but it was hard to hear over the noise.

Several witnesses said the man was part of group from the city's 9th Ward. Just previous year, a man drove his auto into a bike lane near a parade route, striking nine cyclists and killing two. "Like man, the screams, seeing CPR performed on his body and seeing them finally drape that sheet", Gilmore tweeted.

'I never imagined I would witness something so horrific'.

KATC will be at the parade on Tuesday, tracking the floats as the travel through downtown Lafayette.

Float number 13 will be the last float in the #Endymion parade. All of this, over some beads'.

The New Orleans mayor said the city is grieving anew after a woman was killed on a parade route Wednesday. Each float will now require its own tractor.

Nola Ready said the city would be banning tandem floats, a common sight at the parades, for the remainder of Mardi Gras, which runs through Fat Tuesday on February 25.

Carmouche is said to be the relative of two Nyx sisters.

In the tandem setup, two or more floats are connected together by a hitch and pulled by one tractor.

Nyx Captain Julie spoke out about the tragic accident through a spokesperson.

"On such a joyous night, this is obviously a tragic occurrence".

The parade at North Bay also serves as a celebration of the school's St. Jude fundraiser, which raised over $7,000 this year. "The City and the people of New Orleans will come together, we will grieve together, and we will persevere together".

The first New Orleans Mardi Gras parade of 2020 took place on January 4 this year, and the final parade is scheduled for March 1.
