At least eight people were injured, one of them was in danger, after an avalanche took place on Sunday evening in the ramada "La Bombonera" in the municipality of Pichilemu, in the O & # 39; Higgins region.
The incidents took place after a crowd of young people tried to enter the ramada when there was a large number of attendees while ticket sales and public access were slow, which increased the annoyance.
