People fell, one after the other, on top of each other.

"The cause may have been the dispersal of a stinging substance, the young people fled and trampled over each other", firefighters said on Twitter. Dino Poggiali had earlier told Sky TG24 News.

Amy Lieu is a news editor and reporter for Fox News.

Salvini concurred that it is "probably true that there were. more people inside than was permissible".

The cause of the stampede was not immediately clear but first reports on Italian media said the teenagers were trying to escape from the nightclub after someone had set off a can of pepper spray.

Carabinieri paramilitary police Col. Cristian Carrozza said the dead teenagers' ages ranged from 14 to 16 and the woman was 39.

Three girls, two boys and a mother were killed in the panic as around 35 people were injured, Mr Capocasa said.

Six dead and dozens hurt in nightclub stampede in Italy

The radio report said most of the fatalities had suffered crushed skulls.

Around 1,000 people are thought to have been inside the Lanterna Azzurra club at the time of the incident, around 1am local time.

"People can not die like this", said Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, who also serves as interior minister. But Salvini said initial investigation "appears to knock down that possibility".

Fire commander Poggiali said it was too early in the investigation to know if any safety violations might have played a role.

He said that when rescuers arrived, all the doors of the discos were open.

Panicked revellers tried to flee a rap concert after someone sprayed pepper spray into the crowd.

"We will find those responsible for these six broken lives, those who out of malice, stupidity or greed have turned a party night into a tragedy", he added in a statement.
