19-year old student dies after a huge crowd of people fell down the stairs at a house party

A 19-year-old girl has died after a huge crowd of people fell down the stairs at an out-of-control house party in New Zealand.

Sophia Crestani has been named by local media as the teen who died in the tragic pile-up at a house party in the country's most notorious student city over the weekend.

She was reportedly a twin and at her second year of university when she was killed during a rowdy party at the flat in Dunedin.

Police had been called to shut down the party at the large student flat known as 'The Manor' shortly before midnight Saturday, local time.


According to reports they arrived to find people leaving the party in shock after a crowd of people had fallen down the flat's internal staircase.

New Zealand Police estimated several hundred people had attended the party.

The force said emergency services arrived to find a number of people unconscious, including the young woman.

She later died as a result of her injuries, and two other people suffered serious injuries in the incident.
