19 killed in Germany
Berlin, July 25: At least 19 revellers, including women, were trampled to death in a stampede at the world’s largest techno music festival in the German city of Duisberg where nearly 1.5 million people had gathered for the event.
Over 340 people were also injured in the tragedy at the ‘Love Parade’ techno music festival last evening during the stampede at a jam-packed tunnel leading to the open-air venue, police said.
The incident occurred when the music enthusiasts were on their way to the festival grounds near the Duisberg railway station, where people from across Europe were attending. Hit by one of the worst such accidents, the organisers said the annual festival will never be held again.
At least 10 people were resuscitated at the scene. Several of the victims died on the spot while others succumbed to their injuries in hospitals. Police fear the toll may go up in view of serious injuries sustained by several survivors.
