African soccer fans are crazy

At least 12 soccer fans were crushed to death as a crowd rushed from the stadium after Zambia's victory in an African Cup qualifier. Local media is reporting that fans were in a hurry to leave because the match started an hour late. The newspaper said three women and nine men were killed. Fiver other fans were hospitalized after the accident Saturday at Konkola Stadium.

Are they sure the stampede wasn't caused when someone in the parking lot yelled 'we’ve got food and water?' Seriously, how can you get crushed by a herd of 80 pound skeletons?
