Video-Horror! Stampede during Halloween in South Korea

At least 59 people have died after a Halloween stampede in a nightlife neighborhood in the South Korean capital.

According to local media, emergency services say 150 more people were injured in the Itaewon district of Seoul.

In the first reports, 50 people were reported to have suffered cardiac arrest.

The fire department said shortly after 10 p.m. there were 81 reports of “shortness of breath” amid crush alerts during a Halloween celebration.

In videos shared on social networks, dozens of people are seen lying on the ground, apparently unconscious, while emergency personnel tried to revive them with the CPR technique.

According to Reuters, South Korean President Yoon Suk-Yeol ordered a disaster response team to Itaewon, Yongsan-gu district.

There were reportedly 100,000 late-night revelers in the area celebrating the first mask-free outdoor Halloween event since the start of the pandemic.
