It is true when they say "the fate of ones life is in the hands of others." There are some unnecessary fatalities that the human race incurs day in and day out. Some of these things can be prevented if people could have a little alertness. Football and music concerts have shown to be the most hazardous forms of entertainment when we look at the fatality rates. Stampedes are never taken seriously by event planners.

In a rush outside an Africa Cup of Nations play on Monday, at least six people died and more than 40 were injured. Cameroon was playing the Comoros Islands in a soccer match. According to reports, the stadium's capacity was intended to be set at 48,000 people, and the stampede occurred after the gates were locked. Everyone is to blame in this situation. The event planners should have implemented additional safety measures to prevent fatalities, and the spectators should have been aware that shoving one other about would result in significant damage.
