A Royal Air Force bombing raid on Genoa, Italy turned deadly for another reason – a stampede into an air raid shelter. The railway tunnel thousands of people were using as a shelter had a long, steep flight of stairs going into it, and when a group of civilians fell, more people rushing down the stairs fell over them, causing a stampede. Over 350 people were killed.
