Stampede in Italian nightclub leaves 6 dead and over 100 injured

The Lanterna Azzurra club was packed when, some local reports suggest, pepper spray was sacked inside the club in Corinaldo.

Rescuers assist injured people outside a nightclub in Corinaldo, central Italy, early Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018.

Six people died, a lot of them teenagers, in a stampede at a nightclub near Ancona in central Italy after panic erupted in the early hours of Saturday morning, firefighters said.

Luis Valbuena, Jose Castillo killed in auto crash in Venezuela
All three players were born in Venezuela. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during this time of grief". Valbuena, 33, recently played for the Los Angeles Angels and had been a free agent since the end of the 2018 season.

The local fire brigade said someone might have sprayed a substance like pepper spray into the crowd, triggering a panicked rush to the emergency exits.

Carabinieri paramilitary police Col. Cristian Carrozza said the dead teenagers' ages ranged from 14 to 16 and the woman was 39. At least 12 people who were injured in the incident are said to be in serious condition.

Poggiali said he didn't have any immediate confirmation from survivors that the use of an irritating spray, like pepper spray, had set off the panic.

Wilder hoping for a rematch with Fury 'ASAP'

A teenager who survived the terrifying ordeal told Italian media: "We were dancing and waiting for the concert to start when we smelt this pungent odour". Some 40 others were less seriously injured, Poggiali said.

Some survivors were quoted by Italian media as saying at least one fire exit was blocked when concertgoers tried to get out.
