Medical emergency triggers stampede at San Francisco theater

Medical emergency triggers stampede at San Francisco theater

Chaos and mass panic ensued at a San Francisco performance of ’Hamilton’ Friday night after an audience member suffered a medical emergency. Reports indicate people ducked and ran out of the theater, with at least one person yelling ’gun’. This came as a woman in the audience suffered a medical emergency at the same time there were fake gunshots on stage.

I mean were people overreacting here really? Well if we take a look at the situation it seems like an alarm triggered off after a bystander broke emergency glass to the deflibilator. While at the same time gun shots from the scene went off so if both of the events were close enough together the average viewer would probably connect these two events being the alarm and the gun shots to something that isn't a part of the scene. So I don't blame them for fleeing not to mention that these kinds of shootings have happened before in Europe so they might have thought this could have been a repetition of that event especially when confined in an auditorium.

The possibility of gun in the democratic Oasis of San Francisco puts more fear than being on the verge of a typhus outbreak.

Before every play they’re going to have to announce “There will be shots fired onstage. Please do not panic.”

Sometimes I get the sick feeling people what to be involved in a national news event. It’s the latest case of 15 minutes of fame.
