Unhappy Nightclub blaze in Brazil kills 232 people

The circumstances seem eerily like what happened in Rhode Island at, The Station, nightclub 10 years ago. There were 100 people that lost their lives in that blaze.

Why would security officers block people from trying to leave? I can understand trying to get in, but trying to leave? I guess it was pandemonium. Such a horrific loss.

I was reading on another site that there can be anywhere between 2,000 and 3,000 people in this club on any given night! That is incredible!

I am so sorry for all those young lives lost.

Wow, what a nightmare that was waiting to happen with that many people, and then *did* happen.
