Stam­pede in Italy leaves 6 dead, dozens in­jured

The Herald-Sun (Sunday) - - Nation -

A stam­pede at a rap con­cert in an Ital­ian disco killed five teenagers early Satur­day along with a woman who had brought her young daugh­ter to the event, au­thor­i­ties said. Fifty-three peo­ple were in­jured, in­clud­ing 13 in very se­ri­ous con­di­tion.

Video broad­cast on TV RaiNews24 showed scores of teenagers rush­ing out of a door and surg­ing to­ward a low wall near an exit of the Blue Lantern disco in the cen­tral Ital­ian town of Cori­naldo. The bar­rier then ap­peared to give way and a cas­cade of teenagers tum­bled over it.

The dead teenagers’ ages ranged from 14 to 16, au­thor­i­ties said.
