Stinging Substance Panic Leads To Stampede In Italy Nightclub 6 Dead

Officials: 6 dead, dozens hurt in club stampede in Italy

"Sadly, six people died and dozens are injured".

Three girls, two boys and an adult woman, who had accompanied her daughter to the disco in Corinaldo, died at the event on Saturday where an Italian rapper was entertaining the crowd, police chief Oreste Capocasa said in nearby Ancona. Around 1,000 people had entered the club to watch Sera Ebbasta perform at the club, situated on the central Adriatic coast.

More than 100 other people were injured, including 13 who were seriously hurt, officials said.

The cause of the stampede was not immediately clear but first reports on Italian media said the teenagers were trying to escape from the nightclub after someone had set off a can of pepper spray. Numerous injured suffered crushing wounds.

Aside from the Piranha Plant, however, we don't yet know which characters are planned on being introduced into the mix. The voice of Joker in North America, Xander Mobus, is also the voice of the Super Smash Bros announcer.


The ages of the victims have not yet been given.

Asked about survivors' accounts that at least one emergency exit door was blocked or didn't work, Poggiali said it was too early in the investigation to know if any safety violations might have played a role. The disaster occurred at around 1 a.m. local time (0000 UTC). "The bouncers were getting the persons out", one unidentified witness told RAI state radio. The boy, who was being treated in hospital, said at least one of the emergency exits was locked when he tried to flee.

"The cause may have been the dispersal of a stinging substance, the young people fled and trampled over each other".
