Woman dies after mass panic in Turin
Turin – A mass panic struck during the public viewing of the Champions League final between Juventus Turin and Real Madrid, with one of the injured now dead. A 38-year-old Italian woman, who was in a panic over the public viewing during the Champions League final between Juventus Turin and Real Madrid (1:4) on 3-4 March, is now in her third season. The doctors of the hospital in Turin, to which the injured person had been admitted, said that the accident had taken place on Thursday evening. The woman is the first casualty of panic in central Piazza San Carlo in the heart of Turin, where 1500 people were injured, and the woman from Domodossola in Piedmont had suffered a heart attack during the mass panic. The mayor of Turin, Chiara Appendino, wants to declare a day of mourning. She apologized to her fellow citizens and said she deeply regretted what had happened, but it is still unclear what caused the panic on the square where 30,000 people had met. The municipality of Turin is accused of serious organisational shortcomings.
