The party was held on Wednesday night at the University of Technology in Bydgoszcz in northern Poland. According to the University, the student union which organised the party allowed too many students to pack into two lecture halls separated by a walkway.

At one point panic broke out and the students tried to exit the halls, leading to dozens being trampled. One female student died shortly after, while the second victim of the incident, a 19-year-old male student died of his injuries on Saturday.

As of Sunday morning, two more students were still being hospitalised.

On Thursday, the District Prosecutor's Office in Bydgoszcz launched an investigation into this matter. (rg/rk)
