The Korea Herald reported that dozens of people fell unconscious near a hotel just before midnight local time. According to the report, firefighters received the first report of breathing difficulties around 10.30 p.m. Within an hour, the number surpassed 100.

In videos showing panic scenes, common people also attempted resuscitation by pressing the chest.

Over two hours later, news agencies PTI and AFP reported the first deaths. By 8 a.m., the number had gone from nine to 59 and then 149.

Local media reported that many of the injured were women in their 20s.

Over 140 ambulances were dispatched to the scene, a fire department official told AFP.

Hyunsu Yim, a journalist with The Korea Herald, tweeted: “Absolute scenes of chaos in Itaewon right now as the Halloween night has turned into a major safety hazard.” He also shared two photos.

“I’m seeing pictures that I don’t think it’s wise to share here, but they’re heartbreaking… Tonight will go down as one of the most tragic and sad Halloweens in American history.” he said.

The area had been crowded beyond control before the stampede, and some Twitter users had warned people not to come.

Itaewon is not for you. A woman posted videos along with the message, “It’s death-like here… My arm almost broke.”

Just after the first reports, President Yoon Suk-yeol issued a statement: “All related ministries and agencies, including the minister of public administration and security, should promptly provide aid to the victims.”
