10 injured in Pampanga mall stampede

TEN people were reported injured in a mall stampede over the weekend in Angeles City, Pampanga.

Police said the stampede happened as people panicked after hearing a minor explosion from an electric cigarette.

Senior Inspector Edwin Laxamana, of the Angeles City Police Station 1, said people thought it was a bullet fire.

But the battery that exploded came from an e-cigarette that was being fixed.

The incident happened at 7 p.m.

People who panicked broke a glass panel to create an exit.

The injured persons were brought to a hospital for treatment.
