13 Dead in Stampede at Peru Nightclub Operating Illegally due to Coronavirus
13 people have died in a savage stampede early Sunday in Peru, after cops tried to shut down an illegally operating nightclub amid the country’s coronavirus pandemic.
The video shows the chaotic scene as the cops move around. The 120 revelers panicked and tried to escape through one exit. A stampede followed and the victims were trampled on. A number of casualties were run over in the area of the stairwell.
The consequences are horrific, as the bodies were loaded into vans.
The club was not supposed to function … the Peruvian government reinstated a 10 p.m. curfew because COVID is out of control. Peru has been hit harder than most countries in Latin America, with 576,000 cases and more than 27,000 deaths.
Police arrested 23 people.
