Six dead in stam­pede

The Sunday Times - - WORLD -

A STAM­PEDE of pan­icked mu­sic fans, many of them teenagers, at a disco on Italy’s cen­tral Adri­atic coast has killed six peo­ple, all but one of them mi­nors, and in­jured some 50 oth­ers, au­thor­i­ties say.

The dead in­cluded three girls and two boys, and a mother who had ac­com­pa­nied her daugh­ter to the disco in Cori­naldo, near An­cona, where a rap­per was set to per­form, po­lice chief Oreste Capoc­asa said. Tram­pled vic­tims were all found near a low wall in­side the disco, ac­cord­ing to fire­fight­ers.
