A mother (39) and five teens, ages 14 to 16, died after being trampled underfoot at an Italian nightclub in Corinaldo. Pepper spray is believed to have incited the deadly stampede. Like the mother who died while attending with her daughter, many parents had accompanied their children to attend the platinum record winning, Sfera Ebbasta’s, rap concert.
Panic fills Italian nightclub
At the club, celebration and joy was displaced by mass panic and confusion. People fled in a fury for their lives. Deputy Prime Minister, Luigi Di Maio, commented on Facebook that it is absurd for people to die like this. His view is shared by all those who commiserate over these senseless deaths.
The Government will work to piece together what happened. Those responsible will be identified. De Maio wrote: “The Italian government will clarify the dynamics of the story (if all security measures were followed) and we will identify those responsible: a hug and a thought to the families of the victims and to all the wounded.“

Senigallia and Jesi are also treating some victims in their hospitals. Some security officers have been taken to the barracks, where they will be interrogated. Safety exits are also being evaluated. There is much speculation that the club was filled beyond capacity, with more people in attendance than were allowed by safety regulations.
In these days that anticipate the Christmas holidays, we remember those who are gone and the families affected by the pain of such inexcusable deaths.
