Not looking good. 180 may be a low estimate.

Think it's been revised to half that - 90. Still, terrible. But more important to everyone on DL - will they cancel Mardi Gras in Rio ?

CNN now reporting 220 dead.

Fireworks inside,is never a good idea. Sad for thode people who died and their family

It sounds a lot like that nightclub fire in Rhode Island. Fireworks, jam-packed club, flammable soundproofing foam.

I'm sure all the racists here on Datalounge will be celebrating the death of 200+ negromen.

No r5 -- nightclubs have historically been danger zones, and scary for their potential horrors.

Just in New England alone, I think there have been five or six of these sorts of catastrophes, if you count that circus fire.

Oh my gawd!! I hope Pablo! is ok!!

to 5 Nah.South of Brazil in mainly white,german decendants

by Anonymousreply 801/27/2013

R5 and R8 are both wrong - this is Sao Paulo, most of the people in that club are gonna be like most young people in Sao Paulo: all kinds of mixed race Brazilian. Not african black-black, not german white-white. There is a lot of portuguese, native south american, african, dutch, spanish latino, lebanese, german and dozens more all mixed together over time.

To the idiots trying to make something racial out of this, video reports showed mainly euro types.

Pyrotechnics inside a crowded nightclub. What could possibly go wrong?

by Anonymousreply 1801/27/2013

*phew* at least these hotties made it out alive.

From the article:

Ezekiel Corte Real, 23, was quoted by the paper as saying that he helped people to escape. "I just got out because I'm very strong," he said.

Well, smell you Ezekiel.

Tragedy for the rest of the weaklings, I guess.

This is seriously awful, is Pablo okay??

by Anonymousreply 2101/27/2013

Pablo hasnt tweeted since Friday, I will not sleep well until he tweets again! Oh, the humanity of it all!

by Anonymousreply 2201/27/2013

Seriously, Pablo hasn't tweeted? Now I'm worried.

How many dead looks good to you OP?

In the U.S. people remember the Cocoanut Grove fire in Boston back during WWII. But nightclub fires have been killing people since there were nightclubs.

"White Snake comeback a big flop."

I would never even think of going into a nightclub that big. I'd get claustrophobia.

by Anonymousreply 2701/27/2013

Why do these stupid bands set off fireworks in a crowded club? This is like the 4th time something stupid like this has killed people.

What the fuck is wrong with these dumbass bands that can't perform without fireworks? Are they that shitty?

by Anonymousreply 2801/27/2013

I bet that was HOT! In more ways than one.

by Anonymousreply 2901/27/2013

Why would the band even be allowed to have the fireworks?

Awful situation - lots of drunk people running to minimal exits. People getting burned, trampled, and inhaling smoke. Awful.

Death toll in Brazil nightclub fire at 232


A flare, which may have been part of an on-stage display, caught the roof on fire, witnesses say. Most of the victims died from smoke inhalation.

by Anonymousreply 3101/27/2013

Let's call it what it is. Bands today are made up of people with no brains, who are unaware of things like fire or electricity. Before they had battery mikes, hundreds of entertainers and news people were electrocuted every year by not understanding that electricity and water don't mix.

by Anonymousreply 3201/27/2013

Since they all wanted to be the hottest thing in town, this worked out well for them.

by Anonymousreply 3301/27/2013


Pablo still hasnt tweeted yet! :(

by Anonymousreply 3401/27/2013

Another reason to avoid nightclubs.

And I never go near a bar late at night.

by Anonymousreply 3501/27/2013

[quote]About 2,000 people were inside the club when the fire broke out -- double the maximum capacity of 1,000, said Guido de Melo, a state fire official.

[quote]The roof collapsed in several parts of the building, trapping many inside. Firefighters found piles of bodies in the club's bathroom.

When people were trying to run out, security guards blocked them, thinking they were trying to shirk their tabs

by Anonymousreply 3701/30/2013

Who is Pablo?

by Anonymousreply 3801/30/2013

r30 Pablo is one of Brazil's most expensive man-whores! A friend of Anderson Cooper's. He is alive BTW.

by Anonymousreply 3901/30/2013

The band set off a $3 outdoor flare instead of paying $35 for ones that could be used indoors.
