6 people were killed and 35 injured in a stampede of panicked concertgoers early Saturday at a disco in a small town on Italy’s central Adriatic coast.
The ages of the victims weren’t immediately given. It wasn’t clear how many people were inside when the stampede erupted or the club’s maximum capacity.
A 16-year-old boy told ANSA that disco patrons were dancing while awaiting the start of the concert when the stampede erupted.
The report said authorities were investigating if the emergency exits were working.
