Video of the incident, released on social media, shows that the street where Halloween was held was only four meters wide and more than a lakh people attended to celebrate. The street was so narrow that ambulances could not reach people after the incident. After the stampede, people were losing their lives on one side and on the other, the people having fun were dancing stopping the ambulance on the way.

People told that a four-metre narrow street in Itawan near the Hamilton Hotel was packed with millions of people. This was the first Halloween event after the Kovid ban was lifted, in which such a large number of people attended. People were completely immersed in the celebration. According to South Korean media, the first emergency was reported at around 10.22 pm.

It is said that there were over 100,000 people in a narrow lane and a large crowd was reportedly coming out of the hotel and the Etawah metro station. Korean media reports claimed that the crowd grew when a ‘celebrity’ appeared at an establishment around the street. After this, as the crowd kept pushing, people started falling on each other. Due to the crowd, people started showing symptoms of suffocation and cardiac arrest and people started dying.

The ambulance that arrived after the incident had to struggle a lot to reach the victims from the middle of the crowd. The police was repeatedly asking people to give space and make way for an ambulance. But no one was able to listen to him, people were dying on one side and people were dancing and singing on the other side.

As the ambulance could not reach the spot immediately due to the rush, emergency medical technicians started giving CPR to the victims on the way and barely did the relief and rescue work.
