Party gone tragic wrong


Four tourists fell to their deaths from a cliff and dozens of others were injured as a crowd of thousands stampeded to escape a fire during a festival at Mount Hwawang in South Gyeongsang on Feb. 9. Pampas grass fields were set ablaze as part of an event held to mark the first full moon of the lunar new year. Strong winds changed the direction of the fire, causing the blaze to spread suddenly. By Song Bong-geun

경남 화왕산에서 2월9일 저녁 민속 축제를 하는 도중 불길을 피하려던 관광객들이 한꺼번에 몰리면 서 관광객 4명이 벼랑에서 떨어져 사망하고 수십 명이 다쳤다. 정월 대보름 축제로 억새풀밭에 불을 피웠다. 강한 바람이 불어 불길의 방향을 바꾸고 크게 번지게 했다. 송봉근 기자
