上海外灘で偽札に群がり36名死亡:Someone Throwing Fake Money and 36 dead in Shanghai New Year's Eve stampede - UPDATED

Xinhua quoted witness Wu Tao as saying some people had scrambled for coupons that looked like dollar bills bearing the name of a bar that were being thrown out of a third-floor window. -  Fox

One person in the crowd last night said the atmosphere turned chaotic after what appeared to be money started falling from above -- coupons that looked like U.S. dollar bills thrown from a building window across from the square, Xinhua reported. People rushed to toward the building and some fell over in the scramble, it said. - Bloomberg

新華社が伝えた目撃者Wu Taoさんの証言によると、ビルの3階の窓からバーの名前を刷ったドル札そっくりのクーポンがばら撒かれ、人が群がって倒れ、カオスになったという。

どこのバーだ!

UPDATE: Police Rule Out Fake Cash in Shanghai Crush
中国の警察は偽札原因説を否定。事件はリバーフロントに通じる階段を登る人と下りる人で押し合いになって起こったと説明した。ただ現場にいた別の目撃者は、「偽札拾ったけど捨てた。少なくとも原因のひとつだったと思う」と言っている。
