New amateur video shows a panicked crowd of people trying to escape a stampede Saturday at a techno music festival in Germany.
In the video, hundreds of thousands of people can be seen pushing and shoving as they tried to get out of a crowded tunnel that served as the only entrance to the "Love Parade" festival.
Witnesses said police closed the entrance to the tunnel due to overcrowding.
Nineteen people died during the stampede and more than 300 were injured.
German media estimates nearly 1.5 people were at the popular techno music festival.
