Fire brigades said the stampede took place in the Lanterna Azzurra nightclub in the town of Corinaldo, near Ancona, on the Adriatic coast. It quoted one teenager as saying that the emergency exit was blocked. "The bouncers were getting the persons out", one unidentified witness told RAI state radio. The barrier then appeared to give way, and a cascade of teenagers tumbled over it, falling on top of each other.

A teenage survivor told Italian media: "We were dancing and waiting for the concert to start when we smelt this pungent odour". Some of those with minor injuries were treated and released from hospital, he added. Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said there possibly was a "stink" that could have been ammonia or another substance.
