Thirty-Seven Children Die In India Stampede
[link to news.sky.com]

Thirty-seven children have been killed in a stampede at a temple in India, it has been reported.

The youngsters' bodies, together with those of 27 women, have been recovered by police in Kunda, Uttar Pradesh.

A stampede broke out as thousands of people jostled each other to get free clothes and utensils being distributed during a religious ceremony.

An unfinished gate collapsed on the crowd as people surged forward towards a local holy man, police said.

About 44 worshippers were injured in the crush.

Hundreds of people gathered at a nearby hospital for news of their family members.

One grieving father said of his dead seven-year-old daughter: "She had just wandered in to see what was happening."

Deadly stampedes are a relatively common occurrence at temples in India, where large crowds congregate in small areas that lack facilities to control gatherings.

In 2008, more than 145 people died in a stampede at a remote Hindu temple in the Himalayan foothills.

Someone should introduce them to two concepts:

1) Personal Space
2) Birth Control
