People are seen elbowing each other while trying to move as fast as they can, with distressed shouting heard in the background. <figure> <div class="media__youtube"> <iframe class="media__youtube-frame" width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pwOopHZk37k" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> <figcaption><span class="copyright">Cronache Ancona / YouTube</span></figcaption> </figure>
The emergency exit proves to be too narrow to let that many people through quickly. At one point, one of the side barriers collapses under pressure and sends several people falling on each other.
The stampede claimed six lives, and more than 100 were injured.
