    I`ve just watched TV news, and found out that 175 people died and 715 are injured, after assisting to an indoor rock concert in my city. Someone in the crowd used a signal flare that accidentally burned the roof. The place was crowded, many couldn`t escape and died of asphixia. I still can`t believe it.

    Some of my friends are fans of that group. Still gotta find out if they were there or not.

    This 2004 is not having a happy ending. Too many tragedies.

    In America yes, but I think the one he's talking about just happend in Argentina or maybe another South American country.

    That's very sad :(

    I`ve seen that something like that happened in the US a few years back (also in China and in the Philippines). Recently more than 400 died when they were trapped in a shopping centre in Paraguay.

    The club owner was only concerned about his bussiness and not security issues.
