Penyelamat sedang membantu mangsa yang terperangkap oleh rempuhan penyokong yang cuba memasuki stadium.

Two people have been killed and a young boy left fighting for his life after a stampede by fans attempting to enter a Jakarta stadium for the Southeast Asian Games football final.
Monday night's game at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium was sold out, with 88,000 spectators anticipating a showdown between the hosts and Malaysia
With many fans unable to secure tickets, tens of thousands of supporters gathered outside the stadium, some hoping to buy tickets from touts and others finding spots in front of large outdoor screens.
But 5,000 police were unable to control the crowd when a gate was momentarily opened and fans rushed to get through.

"The two victims died when the stadium doors at section 15 opened and everyone rushed in," a Jakarta city police spokesman told the AFP news agency.
"One of the bodies was identified and has been returned to his family, while the other is still at the morgue.
"Several others were taken to hospital with minor injuries, but one young boy slipped into a coma."
In the chaos, the bodies of the two men trampled to death - both wearing the Indonesian team's jersey - could not be immediately evacuated, police said.
