The map shows the location of a deadly crowd crush in Seoul's Itaewon neighborhood.

At least 153 people were killed and more than 82 injured in a deadly stampede in Itaewon as huge crowds of partygoers, many in their late teens and 20s, converged in the entertainment district for late-night Halloween celebrations.

The deadliest stampede in South Korea's history happened Saturday night in a narrow downhill alley near Hamilton Hotel in the famous nightlife district, after tens of thousands of people visited the area for Halloween.
