    I would NEVER go to any kind of party with that many people. I'd lose my mind. So sad though.

    After seeing the images, I'm outraged and horrified in equal measure... What the organizers were thinking when they enable a single entry to the festival under a tunnel?? And just thinking about what this poor people had to suffer it makes me shudder.

    1 million people, that is just crazy! And ONE entrance? I hope the organizers will be severely punished. This is awful.

    That is horrible. Such an awful and terrifying way to go.

    really horrific
    what makes it even sadder is that it was preventable if it had been better organized

    This is so sad.. I have actually gone to LoveParade in the US a couple of times and I can understand. There are so many people there that you feel claustrophobic and you cannot breathe. May these people rest in peace and I pray for their families.

    It's the image of hell:

    Can somebody explain to me what those cops do there, watching the people squashed without lifting a finger?! Ah of course, they're not allowing record the scene.
    Media said security was overwhelmed, however, I have seen anonymous people do far more than some of the order supervisors.

    I think many fronts will be held accountable to justice.

    Horrifying! I can't imagine what it would have been like to be trapped in there.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost loved ones :flower:.

    this is awful. so sad.
    when I heard about it I was shocked. and this is still in my mind.
    when I imagine I would have been there in the crowd ... I'm shaking inside :(
    this must be one of the most horrible ways to die. tramped by ppl or due to suffication...
    thanks for the video Nicolasa. it gives such an impression of all this.
    and even If it's hard to look at, what the police should have done? going into the crowd? this would have failed, just more people in there. i know it's inapprehensible though.
    thanks to all the organisers :angry:
