In Mecca in a stampede killed 717 people
Survivors of a stampede near Mecca, in consequence of which killed 717 people, said about how things happened. The tragedy happened in the place where the train stops.

1 of the pilgrims Abdul Hami reported that the stampede started in the place where the train stops, informs NTV. "It happened in the place where the train stops. People who left the train, started to pass, fell 1st, 2nd fell, and as a result, there was a stampede," explained a member of the Hajj.

As a result, people started to trample each other in the sand, none of the fallen crowd of thousands simply failed to rise. The victims died, without waiting for the arrival of medical workers because the ambulance could not get to the scene of the tragedy. The magnitude of the tragedy compelled the government of Saudi Arabia to suspect a terrorist attack, however this version has not been confirmed.

Recall, September 24, in the valley of Mina in Saudi Arabia during the largest Muslim fun Eid ul-Adha happened a deadly stampede of pilgrims performing the ritual trip. As a result of the tragedy killed 717 people, injured 900. It is generally known that the pilgrims managed to avoid stampedes - they left the scene of an accident just a couple of minutes before the disaster.

At the same time, the Minister of health of Saudi Arabia Khaled al-Faleh called a crush cause of lack of compliance by some pilgrims. According to his statement, "if the pilgrims had kept the annotations on arriving for the Hajj, we might be able to avoid this catastrophe." Al-Faleh explained that, in his opinion, "many of the pilgrims went out (for prayer), ignoring the schedule and the time that they were defined in the first place of movement".
