17 dead at Boxing Match Stampede

  • A fight broke out at an Indonesian boxing match killing 17 and injuring at least 39 people. According to reports, most of the people that died were women. There were more attendees in the stadium than there should have been. The capacity of the stadium was only 800 and there were some 1,500 people in there. Moreover, the venue only had two working exits. 

    There were so many people panicking that the situation got out of hand even though there were military and police personnel present in the stadium. At this point, 13 people are being questioned and there are no suspects in the incident.
