Feared mass panic – tear gas attack at school festival leads to large-scale operation


Great excitement last night in Feldkirch in Vorarlberg: After the police received information about a possible tear gas attack at a school festival with 1300 visitors in the “old indoor swimming pool”, a large alarm went off and almost 100 emergency services were on site within a very short time.

In the night of Saturday, the “High Five” event took place in Feldkirch at the “Alten Hallenbad”. More than 1300 people attended the school festival with music and a DJ. Around 1 a.m., a police patrol was called because amphetamines had been found on a guest there. When the officers arrived, they were met by several excited youths who said pepper spray had probably been sprayed in the old indoor pool.

Also local pharmacy on site
Because the officials had to fear a mass panic, a large-scale operation was unleashed, which meant that fourteen police officers, forty members of the Feldkirch fire brigade, forty people from the rescue service and, among others, the state pharmacy were on the run. scene in a very short time. In total, almost 100 emergency services.

13 injured
Thirteen people were injured by the pepper spray in the incident, but suffered only minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment. As for the irritating gas, the fire brigade did not have to intervene because the gas apparently evaporated on its own. The cause of the contamination could not be determined. The operation lasted until 02:50.
