World Disaster Map

Please note – the use of the word “Stampede” is taken from the press reports and not a reflection of the causality of the accident/incident.

Stampede implies the crowd was at fault, the reality is failure to anticipate, plan or manage crowds are typically the causes of crowd disasters.
