I was watching this live too when it happened, and I knew something was up, because they did not show the replay for the longest time, yet they kept talking about how their thoughts & prayers were with the fans.

I'm not a big racing fan, I just happened to tune in for the final 2 laps - but holy hell, I don't think I could ever go to race live after seeing that.
