Hundreds Die in Nightclub Fire in Santa Maria, Brazil

Hundreds Die in Nightclub Fire in Santa Maria, Brazil

Horrible tragedy occurred in Santa Maria, state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil on Sunday January 27, 2013. As many as 233 people have been reported dead after a performing band’s pyrotechnics show set the Kiss nightclub on fire. Victims died either from asphyxiation due to inhalation of toxic smoke or from being trampled by the crowd desperate to get out of the nightclub.

This scenario of pyrotechnics setting a nightclub ablaze and the shocked revelers panicking and blocking the exits is all too familiar. The same thing happened at The Station nightclub on Rhode Island where 100 people died as a result. Given the confirmed death count of the Kiss nightclub fire, the Santa Maria tragedy is the world’s deadliest nightclub fire in over a decade.

Santa Maria authorities put blame for the fire on the band Gurizada Fandangueira and have not ruled out the possibility that charges would be filed.

Survivors reported that initially, bouncers stopped people from evacuating the nightclub because it’s common for club-goers to leave without paying for drinks and bouncers demanded people show proof that they’d paid for theirs. Not realizing the fire was raging inside, this likely contributed to the death toll.

  1. That’s some serious gore right there.

    I too am having a slow day Markus but c’mon now.

    I’m off to the bottle shop and when I get home I is gonna pack me a cone or 2 and re-visit the chainsaw beheading video untill the next installment of BG arrives………….. ahhhhhh yes, that sounds more like it :mrgreen:

    • Not really. This nightclub wasn’t even supposed to be open, since it does not have the required municipal license to operate. The owner probably bribed the fire inspectors, bribery is a very common thing here in Brazil.

    • i’m guessing not since Brazil is heavily populated ( one of the most populated countries on earth ) but after an event like this some law will be made to have a limit on the amount of people in clubs or musicians will have to have there equipment checked before playing.

  2. finally got my tanto blade sharpened. took longer than it should have, but i finally got an edge on it that i’m not embarassed to look at. don’t know why i felt like sharinf that?

  4. Glad to see all the dead bodies of those who complied with the authoritiy of the bouncers. How dare all those still alive because they defied this authority!

  5. The president mourned today because these club goers can’t be bribed with cocain for votes anymore….. If its true the club shouldn’t have been open then the club owners better skip town quickstyle!

  6. I am a Brazilian citizen of 49 years old ( living in São Paulo city ) and I can say here : the Brazil is a mess nowadays . No one trusts the authorities and politicians . Our politicians just want whores cock suckers, whiskey, lavish dinners, money, power and other perks . They don’t work for our country , just for themselves . Mainly Asians and Arabs are buying all our lands in North ridiculously affordable price , decimating our forests and killing our Indians . The Europeans are buying the best land in our coastal region . The Koreans and Chinese are invading São Paulo city and riding his trades and mistreating the Brazilians workers . Our streets are full of filth on the floor and indifferent people . We have true animals driving vehicles . The vast majority of Brazilian people think just about parties , alcohol , fun and easy enrichment . You don’t see more respect for young people , children , the elderly , the Nature and nor for women . What we have here in majority are people complaining all the time but accepting to live a mediocre life , dreaming of winning the ‘MEGA-SENA’ lottery ticket , that is practically owned by a gang of our Federal Bank CEF cheating weekly our people with the dream of easy money . This occurs from North to South, from East to West . We are becoming a nation of reactionary idiots , poor music with poor lyrics made by idiots ( you can measure the intellectual level of a country through music and I’m ashamed of the most current popular songs here ) .

    In Brazil crime pays. You no longer know who is the real cop or thug . The government spends more money on prisoners than with the education of our youth ! Criminals who are arrested have access to more nutritious meals than the students in public schools ! Our Criminal Code is ridiculous and unfair . Let’s take the case of the husband who murdered his ex-wife recently with several shots in the street : the crime was filmed by a security camera (http://goo.gl/hQ2jv) . The killer came forward to the police with the murder weapon , confessed to the crime and left through the front door of the police station to respond in freedom !
    We have something absurd here called ‘pardon’ . Our Criminal Code give pardon for Easter, Christmas and other dates ‘emotive’ like Mothers Day and Children Day . How this absurd is : if the criminal ( a murderer , a rapist , a drug dealer and the like ) has good behavior in jail and has served one third of the sentence , he has the right to leave the jail to visit family and the obligation to return to the prison after the holiday . Last Christmas we had a true army of over 16.000 really dangerous criminals happy and free , hanging out on the streets of Brazil . Our law full of bullshit and our indolent politicians with a big hole in the ass does this favour for the crime every year . The result is always the same : 40% never return voluntarily ( obviously ) . A humble honest worker earns minimum wage ( US$ 300,00/month ) to sustain his family working 9AM-6PM , 5 days a week but our criminals who are arrested have the right to receive assistance from the government ( http://goo. gl/Jmp2N ) whose value is ( believe me ) above minimum wage . Worse , EACH dependent of the criminal under 18 years of age has the right to receive this money . In short : if the criminal killed an honest father of family and has 10 children under 18 years , this piece of shit has the right to receive more than US$ 3,000.00/month while jailed . I’m not kidding . You can make a small business fucking your wife like crazy to make many babys , commit a crime , go to the jail , eat well and receive a good money that is guaranteed like a right . You want more ? Making counts, every Brazilian works four months a year just to pay taxes , which are the biggest in the world . Ask any Brazilian if I’m lying .

    What happened in this nightclub ( Boate Kiss ) I explain based on the information obtained in the news here : a house with a capacity of 800 people receiving almost 2,000 in a tight space to see the show from a idiot band ( Gurizada Fandangueira Band – one member died ) that was always using pyrotechnics INDOOR during their shows . On this fateful night the vocalist of the band lit one pointing to the ceiling whose lining was styrofoam and foam and in seconds the flames and smoke spread around and to complicate the truculent security guards locked the exit doors claiming it was necessary to pay the bill of the drinks before ! Some customers came into fight to have access to a single exit door ( yes , just a exit door – 1,60m width – to almost 2.000 people in panic ) when the fire was spreading inside . The result were those piles of bodies of innocent young people that was were there just for fun . A true tragedy . Horrible death they had . RIP MY YOUTHS .

    Now , to make the things worse , in February we will have a very popular event and internationally known as the name of Carnival . For those unaware , the Carnival is all about beautiful women but has everything to do with organized crime, teens prostitution, arms sales, drug sales, corruption and illegal gambling . Google ‘Primeiro Comando da Capital ( PCC )’ and ‘Comando Vermelho ( CV )’ . The first belongs to São Paulo and the second to Rio de Janeiro . Most of the money that funds the Carnival ( mainly in Rio de Janeiro ) comes from organized crime . But people do not care and most of them do not know about these details . They are thinking more about the whores , the trannies and the pools of beer that will drink and listen a poor Samba music , whose musical quality and roots was abandoned many years ago . Carnival is not more a party , is just a huge millionaire competition of egos during 4 days . The true Carnival is dead .

    We have good people here but like I said : Brazil is a mess nowadays .

  7. Folks were screamin’,
    Out of control.
    It was so entertainin’,
    When the boogie started to explode.
    I heard somebody say:
    Burn baby burn!
    Disco inferno!
    Burn baby burn!
    Burn that mama down.
    Burn baby burn!
    Disco inferno!
