Corinaldo - Six people died and dozens were injured in a stampede when panic broke out during a rap concert at an Italian nightclub Saturday morning, the fire service said.

The victims include five people under the age of 18 - three girls and two boys - and an adult woman who accompanied her daughter to the concert, media reports say.

Local reports suggest around 1,000 people were in the Lanterna Azzurra nightclub for a performance by the Italian rapper Sfera Ebbasta.

Officials said people ran for the exits after someone sprayed a noxious substance at 1am local time (12am GMT).

About 35 other people were injured, 12 of whom were in serious condition, Mr Capocasa said. He said that when rescuers arrived, all the doors were open. "The bouncers were getting the persons out", one unidentified witness told RAI state radio.

Poggiali also said he didn't have any immediately confirmation about use of any irritating spray. People fell, one after the other, on top of each other.

Some survivors were quoted by Italian media as saying at least one fire exit was blocked when concertgoers tried to get out.

Some of those with minor injuries were treated and released from a hospital, he said.

A 16-year-old boy told ANSA news agency disco patrons were dancing while waiting for the concert to start when the stampede erupted. Another eyewitness said a wall inside the club had collapsed in the melee.
