Six dead, 35 injured at nightclub stamped in Ancona, Italy.

Italian fire officials and ANSA news agency said the
audience at Italian rapper Sfera Ebbasta’s concert at the
Lanterna Azzurra nightclub panicked and ran for the exits
after someone sprayed a substance similar to pepper spray.
A teenager told ANSA he discovered that at least one of the
emergency exits was locked when he tried to flee. The
report said authorities were investigating if the emergency
exits were working.

Six people, all but one of them minors, were killed and about
35 others injured in a stampede of panicked concertgoers
early Saturday at a disco in a small town on Italy’s central
Adriatic coast, authorities said.

The dead included three girls and two boys and an adult
woman, a mother who had accompanied her daughter to the
disco in Corinaldo, where an Italian rapper was entertaining
the crowd, police chief Oreste Capocasa said in nearby
Ancona. Twelve of the 35 injured were in serious condition,
Capocasa said.The ages of the victims weren't immediately given. It
wasn't immediately clear how many people were inside
when the stampede erupted or the club's maximum
capacity.
