Pope prays for victims of deadly stampede in Italy

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Pope Francis prayed on Saturday (December 8) for the six victims of a stampede at a packed nightclub near Ancona on Italy's Adriatic coast.

The pontiff spoke in front of thousands in St.

Peter's Square.

The deaths occurred when a walkway leading out of the Lanterna Azzurra nightclub in the town of Corinaldo collapsed, causing dozens of people to fall into a trench below.

Three girls, two boys and a mother who had accompanied her child to the event died in the crush.

The local fire brigade said someone might have sprayed a substance like pepper spray into the crowd, triggering a panicked rush to the emergency exits.
