Emergency services said they had been called to reports of a fire on a train at Parsons Green Station in West London at 8.20 a.m.
The Metro newspaper reported that passengers had suffered facial burns from a blast and others had been hurt in a subsequent stampede. An unverified picture circulating on social media showed a white bucket with a supermarket freezer bag on the floor of one train carriage. The bucket was in flames and there appeared to be wires coming out of the top.
LDOCEには “when a group of people all want to do the same thing at the same time” や “when a group of large animals or people suddenly start running in the same direction because they are frightened or excited” と定義されています。
記事には “others had been hurt in a subsequent stampede” とあることから、爆発の後パニックに陥った人々がいっせいに逃げ出そうとしたことが伺えます。（aqua）
