A mannequin's head, bottles and and other debris lie in the Madrid Arena venue car park Madrid, Thursday Nov. 1, 2012. Three women have been killed and two injured in a stampede during a large Halloween Night party at a Madrid indoor venue. Emergency services spokesman Fernando Prado said the women, aged between 18-25 years old, suffered trauma injuries and heart failure compatible with having been crushed during a stampede after a flare was reportedly set off within Madrid Arena in the west of the city, where thousands of people were partying early Thursday. Halloween has recently become a popular festivity in Spain coinciding with the traditional feast of All Saints. (AP Photo/Paul White)
