Some Sad Facts About Carlton Tower Mishap

From The Hindu (emphasis mine):

  • …the doors leading to the open terrace were locked resulting in a stampede as they rushed back down the stairs.
  • Panicking, four persons, including a young woman, jumped from the seventh floor windows and lost their lives.
  • …the terrace doors were locked to prevent the staff and customers of the various restaurants from using the space to consume alcohol.
  • “They lost their lives because they were confused.”
  • They demanded a building plan which led to heated arguments with an angry public.

This makes me remember those beautiful words from The Myst, which I wrote about earlier.
