Dunedin's student community is in shock, following a death at a party this weekend. A young woman died and two people were seriously injured as dozens of people tried to flee a house on Dundas Street just before midnight on Saturday. Witnesses describe the student party as standing room only - saying the hundreds of partygoers in attendance could barely move. Tess Brunton spoke to a student who was at the party and returned the next day to leave flowers outside. He says there were just too many people trying to get out at the same time.
