韩国首尔梨泰院昨晚(10月29日)在欢庆万圣节活动期间发生严重踩踏惨剧。截止今早,这场事故造成至少151人死亡,其中包括19名外国人,分别来自中国、伊朗、乌兹别克和挪威,而受伤人数也增至82人,死伤人数仍有可能上升。

死者大多为20岁左右女性
韩国官员:或在小巷里被压死

综合外媒报导,今年的万圣节是韩国爆发新冠疫情后的首个“户外无口罩”活动,因此有超过10万人涌入梨泰院狂欢,迈入夜晚,人潮也愈发汹涌。

当地时间约10:20PM开始,梨泰院汉密尔顿酒店附近的一条小巷陆续传出有民众出现呼吸困难等症状。

韩国警方起初接获至少81通呼吸困难的投报,抵达现场后发现情况更为紧急,有数十人已经处于心脏骤停的状态,并立即对他们实施心肺复苏术(CPR)进行抢救。

路透社引述龙山消防局局长崔成范指出,“万圣节期间有很多人摔倒,我们有大量人员伤亡……许多死者在夜总会附近(被发现),且大多是20岁左右的女性”。

崔成范补充道,所有的死者很有可能是在一条狭窄的小巷里被压死的。

由于出现大量人员伤亡,韩国当局也在现场附近一栋建筑物设置了临时停尸房。当局也正在调查引发踩踏事故的具体原因。

踩踏事件爆发后,韩国总统尹锡悦紧急召开事故应对会议,并下令官员派遣救援队前往现场,也要求启动紧急医疗系统,并确保私立医院拥有充足的床位数量。

尹锡悦随后宣布全国进入哀悼期,国会也将召开紧急会议。

人群挤爆窒息尖叫
遍地可见蓝色尸袋

此外,网络上也不断流传出事发当时的画面。画面可以看到,人潮将梨泰院挤得水泻不同,人们互相推挤、寸步难行。
其中一段视频画面,更被认为是这起意外原因——一条巷子里,水泄不通的民众一层一层堆叠,完全动弹不得。

到场的消防人员用尽全力试图将人拉出,但由于卡得太紧,根本无法动弹。

也有影片传出民众因为陷入恐慌,而不断放声尖叫、面露痛苦表情。

不少昏迷者被搬到马路上进行CPR抢救,但已有整排昏迷者被盖上蓝布,宣告不治。
