A September 2008 stampede at the Chamunda Devi temple in Jodhpur, India killed 224 people and injured over 400. 25,000 Hindu pilgrims had packed the area outside the temple, and when a rumor went through the crowd about a bomb threat, the crowd surged through the temple’s one door. A crowd control wall collapsed, and a panic went through the throng, sending people trampling over each other.
