Two children remain in intensive care after radio stunt stampede

Two children remained in critical condition in hospital on Thursday following a stampede caused by a private radio stunt in the south Bohemian town of České Budějovice. As well as the two children in intensive care, five other children and two adults are also undergoing hospital treatment. Twenty-four people were injured when the radio station offered to drop 100,000 crowns among the crowd in the town’s main square. Police are investigating whether criminal charges should be pressed for recklessly endangering safety with a jail sentence of up to two years possible.
