A fire at a Bangkok Nightclub's NYE party (called Goodbye Santika) killed at least 59 people least night and injured 200+. See little flame graphic under News & Event beside this particular party. Video footage [graphic].

Previously 1 2 3 4 (particulary interesting because this was the party to celebrate the life of Peter Giele, the man who designed Club Roxy).

That's some pretty graphic youtube there. Amazing, but you might want to warn people.

Yes, I'm not sure graphic news footage (accompanied by a link to a borderline-tasteless gif added to a party listing) is the Best of the Web. Tragic and gory, but not much else to say here at this point in the story.

All this thread needs is a "this sucks" button we can all press, then move on.
