Police said around 50 people were being given CPR on the streets of Itaewon while many others have been taken to nearby hospitals.

It is understood there were around 100,000 revellers in the area celebrating Halloween when the stampede happened.

أكثر من 400 emergency workers were rushed to the scene, close to the Hamilton Hotela popular party spot in the city.

Shocking footage shows dozens of victims being treated on the street by medics and people passing by.

Choi Cheon-sik, an official from the National Fire Agency, said around 100 people were reported as injured during the crowd surge Saturday night in the Itaewon leisure district.

He did not give a specific number of the people being treated for cardiac arrest but said they were in the dozens.

It is feared several people may have died in the crush.

South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol issued a statement calling for officials to ensure swift treatment for those injured and review the safety of the festivity sites.

It is the first time people in Seoul have been able to celebrate Halloween without a face mask since the pandemic.
