Authors Bruno Ferreira and Moreira Ferrero summarize as follows:
"When rescuers and the authorities were finally able to enter the club, they witnessed a scene of desperation and complete chaos as more and more bodies were discovered in the restrooms. Brazil’s Globo opined that the revelers were looking for a way out. There were bodies that went all the way to the back of the club. The fire turned the nightclub into a deathtrap for all of these concertgoers. Many died of asphyxiation as toxic gases and smoke overwhelmed the trapped partygoers.
One thing is clear. Improvised pyrotechnic performances inside nightclubs should be banned. That’s the common thread between all those tragedies and losses of human lives. Pyrotechnics display has no place inside a nightclub. Concerts organized en plein air are other things.
President Dilma Roussef wants to know what went wrong and how to prevent such future tragedies. She is giving the full support of the Federal government. She spent a major part of her life in Rio Grande do Sul, the southern part of Brazil. Brazilian officials have already started to investigate the causes of that deadly fire. They want to know whether the fire sprinklers were working. They want to know whether the security guards truly impeded the public’s exit in case of emergency. According to Globo, the nightclub’s permit verifying health and safety standards was expired months ago. Authorities will also have to review how they go about the enforcement of safety standards in the whole country. As the world’s eyes are on Brazil from now on due to the upcoming world cup and Olympic games, they may have to take a deeper look at those standards and practices again. The world’s best athletes will be in most Brazilian buildings, stadiums, and hotels.
