Stampede in Italy leaves 6 dead, dozens injured
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.
