DonLever Posted December 31, 2014 Share Posted December 31, 2014 from Business Week: A stampede during New Year’s eve celebrations in Shanghai has left 35 people dead, the city government said in a posting on the microblogging site Weibo. The incident, which happened at about 11:35 p.m. local time at Chen Yi Square on the city’s Bund riverside pedestrian area when people gathered to celebrate the New Year, also caused 43 injuries, according to a post on Weibo. The Shanghai government has established a work group to address the situation. Shanghai officials had canceled a large-scale public event in the Bund area this year, according to a Dec. 31 Shanghai Morning Post report posted on the city’s website. Subway stations remained open during New Year’s eve and the city had also extended public transportation hours to meet passenger demand. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
