That sucks, but I'm sure panick/selfishness had something to do with the death count. Everybody screaming and pushing running for the door, if they would've been single file, I wonder how many could have been saved. I wonder why people still do stuff like this after the Great White club debacle. Sad.

That's all?  245?  Must not have been a popular night club.  Because those damn Brazilians tend to pack a club so deep you literally have a second wave riding on shoulders in there.

What a fucking shithole country.

Costa Rica is a strong runner up.  Years ago the first time I ever went to San Jose I went to this club there.  Now keep in mind that most clubs don't even open their doors until midnight.  I went there at like 4am.  It was a small warehouse building built onto the side of the mountain.  They had built a wooden open deck out back.  You walked to the end of the deck and looked down and it was like a 200 ft drop.  Imagine a soup can on wooden (yeah.... as in lumber) stilts built into the mountain slope.  

About an hour later they started playing Jump by the Pointer Sisters and every one in there was jumping up and down in time to the vocal chorus.  You could literally feel the building swaying back and forth under all that weight and impact.  I tried to get the hell out of there.  As small as that club was it still took me over 45 mins to push my way to the door and outside.  It's a wonder that building didn't break off and go down that mountain slope like Charlie Browns sled.

Clubs are death traps. 1000-2000 people and how many exits?

"Laissez faire" attitude to fire/building/safety codes and other business practises in Latin America...

their buildings overthere probably don't even have fucking firecodes....I'm sure most clubs there are packed with people like fucking Sardines in a can

Damn, especially with foreigners in the middle of nowhere there is no law. I think you got lucky there that nothing happened God forbid.

Victims are saying after the fire started, security locked the doors to avoid people going out before paying for their drinks.
