South Africa: At Least 17 People Dead In A Bar In East London

South Africa: At Least 17 People Dead In A Bar In East London

At least 17 people have been killed in the early hours of this Sunday at an East London, South Africa bar. Authorities are investigating the cause of the deaths.

SABC News initially reported that 22 people had died and later revised the number to 17 after some were taken to the hospital for treatment. 

The state broadcaster said there was a stampede inside the venue.

The police and Emergency Service workers remain on the scene. Numerous people were also injured. SABC reporter, Abongile Jantjies, says a forensic investigation is also underway to determine the exact cause of the tragedy. Reports Jantjies:

Some of the residents are waiting, some of their children did not come home yesterday. So they are thinking some might be there. It is something that is not fathomable and they can’t understand what lead to it.

Initial reports indicate that a stampede was triggered inside the tavern, an incident described as bizarre.

The spokesperson for the department of roads and safety, Unathi Binqose, says more detail will emerge during the day.

Binqose told SABC News that they did not know if the people were poisoned or if something else happened. Added Binqose:

The police are on the scene along with forensic experts to piece together what lead to this bad incident.

I wish if these people had died in a stampede praying in a church than dieing in a bar. May their spirits rest in eternal peace.
