Seven injured in stampede as Chinese rush to see David Beckham

June 20th, 2013


When you’re David Beckham, you’re used to getting the Justin Bieber treatment. Still, this is a bit surreal.

In Becks’ latest visit to China as Football Ambassador, an appearance at the Shanghai Tongji University turned into a bloody mess, quite literally. Hundreds of people swarmed to get a glimpse of the retired superstar as he exited his car and made his way onto the pitch, causing a stampede that resulted in seven injuries. Several security guards were trampled and had to be hospitalized, visibly bloodied. Fortunately for our soccer hero, Beckham wasn’t harmed.
