5 teens and a mum killed in rap gig crush

Sunday Mirror - - KHAN SAIRA -

FIVE teenagers and a mother were tram­pled to death in a stam­pede at a night­club rap con­cert.

Thir­teen oth­ers were se­ri­ously in­jured af­ter a pep­per-like spray sparked panic on Fri­day night.

Three girls and two boys, aged 14 to 16, and a mother, 39, who was with her daugh­ter, died in the hor­ror in Cori­naldo, on Italy’s Adri­atic coast.

Wit­nesses claim one of the three exit doors was blocked as the 800 watch­ing Italy’s top rap­per Sfera Eb­basta tried to flee.

A balustrade also gave way. In­te­rior minister Mat­teo Salvini said too many may have been packed into the club.
