Two more charged in bunker party

Police in Oslo have charged two more people with organizing a rave party in an abandoned underground civil defense shelter that left nearly 30 people with carbon monoxide poisoning. That brings to four the number of those charged with arranging an event that could have become a national tragedy.

All defendants are charged with breaking into the bunker under a park in Oslo, reckless endangerment of the public and violations of infection control regulations during the Corona pandemic. The potentially fatal carbon monoxide poisoning came from a generator used to provide electricity to power music systems inside the bunker, which had virtually no ventilation and only one entrance/exit that measured just one square meter wide.

There were around 200 people inside the bunker and all could have been poisoned or killed. Emergency crews noted that if any fire had broken out in the bunker, it also could have had fatal consequences because of the lack of escape routes.

Police aren’t ruling out more arrests in the case.
