    The deadly incident occurred at a popular night club, when a metal barrier collapsed under students during the massively popular drinking event.

    A 20-year-old female student at the University of Durham suffered a fatal head injury, when a metal barrier used for crowd control crashed on to club-goers lining up during a busy Wednesday night.

    According to the eyewitnesses quoted by the Tab, the Missoula nightclub was overwhelmed by the "complete chaos", as crowds of local students sought to get cheap drinks during the Game Over party organized by the club's management.

    "We'd made it to the front but they refused to let any more people in until 12."

    "People were trying to reason with them, telling the bouncers it wasn't safe and someone was going to get hurt," a bystander told the newspaper.

    In an effort to control the raging crowds, the club's security put up the metal barriers, which eventually collapsed under the students.

    The victim was trapped underneath the fallen barrier, and was killed by a fatal head injury.

    The local security attempted to resuscitate the woman before the paramedics arrived, yet she was pronounced dead on the scene.

    Students could get bottles of beer for only £2 and shots of liquor, such as Sambuca and tequila, for just £1.

    "CPR was already in progress. We sent three resources, as well as an officer. Sadly, the patient died at the scene."

    The investigation into the circumstances of the death is still ongoing.
