Panic after corona checks in a discotheque near Cloppenburg

The guests wanted to celebrate happily into the weekend. But there were too many in the room – and the vaccination status checks probably didn’t work either. Employees of the district stepped in.

Cloppenburg / Vechta – There was a panic with injured people on Saturday night in a discotheque in Friesoythe, Lower Saxony.

Employees of the district of Cloppenburg had the disco cleared shortly before midnight because many guests had been admitted without checking their vaccination status, as the police announced on Saturday. Too many visitors had also been let in. There was a great crush during the evacuation, some guests panicked. The police ordered the emergency exits to be opened.

Rescue workers and the psychosocial emergency care looked after those affected. There were isolated cases of fainting and hyperventilation, as it was said. The evacuation and its consequences lasted until 4:00 a.m. The district initiated fine proceedings against the organizer. In addition, further legal steps would be examined. dpa
