Have you been hurt whilst in a crowd?
Often, at public events crowds can build up and the sheer number of people present can create a risk of danger. Following many high profile crowd related injuries occurring a few years ago, new procedures were put in place to try and protect people at public events.
For example, many indoor concerts now only allow a limited standing area whilst some even insist that each person has access to a seat to avoid overcrowding. At festivals and outdoor events, tickets are obviously restricted and security are generally present to try and prevent the crown from becoming too boisterous.
By ensuring the security staff patrol the crowd correctly, they can often pull people out if they are at risk of becoming unwell or injured. As the environment at many concerts and gigs can become hot, if you’re stuck in the middle of a crowd, you could start to feel faint or unwell. As it can be difficult to get through the crowds quickly, you could be at risk of fainting and then being trampled on by people around you who don’t realise that you’ve become unwell.
However, at most public events, there are a range of security personnel which aim to ensure the safety of attendees and medical staff are normally on hand to help anyone who has become unwell or been injured.
