BECKHAM-MANIA

Becks Causes Stampede in China

Who doesn’t want to get their hands on David Beckham’s biceps? The soccer star caused a stampede reminiscent of Beatle-mania while visiting a university in Shanghai on Thursday. Seven people were injured in the rush to get to Becks, including five security personnel who were reportedly ill-prepared for the chaos and trampled by the crowd as soon as Beckham’s car arrived. One policewoman took the “full weight of the crowd,” according to a photographer at the scene who saw “a pool of blood coming out of her nose and mouth.” Now that the former Manchester United midfielder has taken on a new role as a Chinese “football ambassador,” they might want to consider tighter security when Becks next comes to town.
