UC Berkeley alumnus and former Daily Californian online managing editor Seung Lee narrowly avoided the tragedy when he left the warehouse to purchase drinks at a nearby liquor store.
“There were a lot of people holding each other — there were some people kind of crying and wailing and just saying, ‘Oh my god, oh my god,’ ” Lee told the student paper. “That’s one of the hardest parts — it’s the fact that you know maybe they knew that they had people inside there.”
