Romanian Nightclub Fire Death Toll Reaches 60
The numbers continue to mount. The death toll in the Colectiv nightclub fire has now climbed to 60, according to Billboard.
Romanian authorities say a 19-year-old student succumbed to injuries at the AKH Vienna General Hospital on Sunday (Nov. 22), bringing the total to 60. Meanwhile, a 22-year-old man perished on Saturday as a result of damage from his burns.
The deaths all came as a result of fire that broke out at the nightclub on Oct. 30 when the band Goodbye to Gravity was staging their record release show. Four of the band's five members are among those who have died in the incident.
The fire started when a spark ignited the foam décor during the band's concert. It was reported that the club had two major exit ways and that many concertgoers stampeded toward a single door while trying to flee.
