Three spanish young women have died and other two are hospitalized in critical state on having suffered cardiorespiratory stops for crushing during an avalanche provoked by the launch of a flare that caused the panic between the thousands of assistants to a Halloween’s holiday celebrated in the enclosure Madrid-Arena, located in the Country House of Madrid (Spain).
4 A.M., the emergency services of Madrid received a notice from the enclosure Madrid -Arenas, located in the Country House of Madrid and with an appraisal of 10.000 persons, where a holiday was celebrated to celebrate the night of Halloween, to attend to several Spanish young women, of between 18 and 25 years, which they were finding in cardiorespiratory stop of traumatic origin for crushing on having suffered a fall and having been wound. Also the telephone of the police receives diverse calls proceeding from the interior of the enclosure in which it was informing that there had produced to itself an avalanche of people provoked by the panic consequence of the launch of a flare. In two minutes present a sanitary unit, immediately afterwards of five mobile Units of Intensive Care, four basic ambulances, several vehicles with personnel of Civil Protection and Policeman, in total 50 persons, but already it was too much late, two of the affected girls were dying in the infirmary of the enclosure after an agonizing attempt of resuscitation and the third one on having come to the Clinical hospital of the capital. Other two girls are very serious in the hospital Doce de Octubre and the Foundation Jiménez Díaz where they were moved.
Nowadays the State police investigates the circumstances of the event while in the mass media of the whole Spain the news is commented by the consistent speculations and lamentations. It was known that this was going to happen since in the social networks there was rumored that there had sold income others that were overcoming fully the appraisal. The big holidays are very dangerous because it is impossible to support the safety of so many people. The safety of these events they are terrible, in them there get flares, petards, knifes, there is the slightly personal one of safety, few fire-extinguishers, even it has managed to say that the safety doors and evacuation are closed and seal in order that they could not be opened and people slip past without paying. Also persons in charge are looked. The organizing company for not having sufficient measures of safety. The administrations for not inspecting and to control due these events, etc. But what more has been called me the attention is that nobody has said that the persons in charge are the own assistants for not making sure of the safety of the event where they are going to take part or of the parents of the young persons for not forming them due in a few basic procedure of safety being careful and being observed in this type of events or any another circumstance. That it is not of surprising so in Spain always the fault has other one. The parents we try to teach to our children, from small, what it are nice and what it is bad, to that they know the dangers of the drugs, enclosed some they dare with the sexual education, but that father tries to inculcate a safety culture to his son?
This one is not the first time that happens a tragedy of these characteristics. In the mind of all the fire of the Discotheque is Alcalá 20, a tragic event happened the dawn of December 17, 1983 in the discotheque Alcalá 20 of Madrid (Spain), in which 82 persons died and more recently on December 30, 2004 in the Discotheque Cromañón located in the neighborhood of Eleven of Buenos Aires (Argentina) a fire causes the tragic death of 194 persons and more than 700 injured men.
But the problem is that it will not be the last time that pass, the police will conclude his investigation and the justice was purifying responsibilities, the administration will change the legislation to improve the safety of the assistants to this type of events, but surely tragic events will continue happening as those of this dawn if we themselves do not have a safety culture, if we do not demand from the organizers suitable measures that guarantee our safety and that of our children and that it is more important, if we do not inculcate this culture of safety to our children or do not supervise correctly his exits.
