there was no exit, even for those that wanted to leave, since mishtarah didn't let anyone in, it was what they call R"L a dead end, they took apart some bleachers to free up the space
OMG. Don't start defending those who did those stuff. (If true).

Yes, I may have misread. Sorry, I'm just very upset (as I'm sure everyone is).

Im considering canceling my backyard bonfire scheduled for tonight. Thoughts?
In your yard you are the one who sets the vibe. I wouldn't turn on music or do lavish dancing, but singing the zmiros with kavanah and taking in the Ohr of this big day in a holy manner, I don't see anything wrong with that.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

From WhatsApp:

By now everyone has heard of the tragedy that's happened in Meron.

While everyone is busy calculating and figuring out how it happened and how many r"l have already passed away

PLEASE

AT 8:33PM ET, 3:33am in Israel

Say Kapital 33 that in the merit of Lag Baomer Hashem should protect all those who are injured and sick.

Please forward.

רק שנבין את הפרופורציות של האירוע הזה תוצאות של אסונות אזרחיים:

‏אסון האוטובוס בכרמל - 38 הרוגים

‏אסון אוטובוס התיירים - 24 הרוגים

‏אסון אולמי ורסאי - 23 הרוגים

‏אסון הבונים - 22 הרוגים

‏אסון קריסת החניון - 6 הרוגים

‏אסון גשר המכביה - 4 הרוגים

‏אסון פסטיבל ערד - 3 הרוגים


This is larger.

You can literally see bodies beneath bleachers so theres definitely collapsed bleachers somewhere in this story.. this is beyond heartbreaking. :'( :'(

Those were temporary wall panels, not bleachers

For what reason exactly?  :-\
This isn't a random car accident, which also should hurt everybody in the heart.

Lad Be'omer is a day that everyone is yearning to be in Meron and it means every single one of us personally if something like this happened.

I guess I took it  the wrong way. I thought he meant  cancel for the next bunch of years.

Most Lag B'aomer celebrations happen in E"Y at night anyhow so most of that stuff is over already...

I meant for tonight. Such a tragedy how can we celebrate...

Reports that it started when police blocked a path where people wanted to get in/out.

If you look at the videos, there is a long sloping ramp stuffed with people, and it ends with a staircase going down. The police blocked off the bottom of the staircase with metal panel walls, causing the ramp  to get overstuffed. Eventually they ripped open the metal walls (which people are mistaking for bleachers), but it was too late. Too many people already fell down by the stairs and many fell on top of them.

If c"v a tragedy affected my immediate family on Lag Ba'omer, I think I'd want people to dance harder. Storm the gates of heaven the way Rashbi wanted us to. Frivolity should definitely be cancelled, but to cancel Rashbi's wishes, which all those who passed were doing themselves, feels off. Everyone handles these things differently, just my personal feelings.
