Scenes from a music festival turned into a flash from “The Inferno” Saturday when colored powder ignited in mid air over a dance floor packed with hundreds, sending terrified partygoers scrambling for safety.
The accident happened at Formosa Water Park in New Taipei City, Taiwan, during a “Color Play Asia” event when powder meant to decorate about 1,000 dancers turned into a ball of fire.
Miraculously, no one was killed in either the fire or the crush of people fleeing the flames.
One witness told Taiwan media the flames seemed like part of a planned special effect at first, according to the New York Daily News.
“But then I realized there was something wrong, and people started screaming and running.”
According to Taiwan officials, 516 people were injured, 183 of them seriously.
