    - 130,000 people passed through the Itaewon station. Experts in Korea and internationally noted that the govt could have routed the trains to bypass the station to limit the amount of people entering the town, as well as using the cctv to help establish and deal with what was happening.

    Ofc Sm should cancel their party and donate the money for funerals of the victims. It makes no sense to go ahead with it.

  • edit - vivi has updated version of news


    Some local media reports earlier said the crush happened after a large number of people rushed to an Itaewon bar after hearing an unidentified celebrity visited there.


    Local media said around 100,000 people flocked to Itaewon streets for the Halloween festivities, which were the biggest in years following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in recent months.

    I can't post more than this because other tweets have dead bodies in the crowd.

  • The narrow streets and people continuing to push people ahead of them causing people to pass out and go into cardiac arrest much like Astroworld. You can’t breathe and you cannot force the many packed around you to move and give you air.

  • the tone suggests its someone very disappointed by korean citizens-they are most likely also korean /stay in korea

    If they are korean, I kinda undrestand the disappointment bc it's sth that could or have happened to them and people around them.


    The collective lack of exercising common sense led to sth awful and loss of many young people.

    Oh okay. Even if there was one it doesnt change much.


    Anyways I saw the videos, horrible and sad!! And the CPR those health professionals are supposedly giving is a joke!

  • RIP all the victims, huge tragedy.


    I never understood why Koreans and Japanese even celebrate all these western holidays. It is not like they were colonized either. It is just a conscious import for aesthetic purposes.

  • Oh okay. Even if there was one it doesnt change much.


    Anyways I saw the videos, horrible and sad!! And the CPR those health professionals are supposedly giving is a joke!

    There wasn't enough health professionals around


    Half of the CPRs were carried out by civilians.


    I don't think anyone was prepared for a disaster of this magnitude
