378 Die In Festival Stampede
The death toll from a stampede at a Cambodian festival has reached 378 and is expected to climb. The stampede happened after the Bon Om Took festival which marks the end of the rainy season and features boat races. The incident seems to be the result of a panic set off when several people fainted while waiting to cross a narrow bridge and people began piling on top of each other to cross. If that was me, I would of been fine, I never try to leave early.
