This next story will make you think twice about hitting up a nightclub on your vacation to Brazil. There was a fire late last night at one of Santa Maria’s hottest nightclubs, Kiss.

This fire took the lives of 245 people and is considered to be a severe tragedy. Not only was the club 1,000 people over capacity, but the front doors were locked when the fire broke out as well.

These are the same bouncers who, reportedly, did not immediately open the doors because they weren’t sure everybody, who was about to die from having smoke in their lungs, paid for their drinks before leaving.

See they have this policy in Brazilian nightclubs that requires every customer to show the bouncers a receipt that says that they have paid for their drinks if they want to leave.

Rule or no rule, it still sounds like some guy who wanted a lot of people dead tipped off the bouncers to let in all those people and lock the front door after they smelled smoke.

Survivors said that even though the bouncers knew there was a fire, they were making it a priority to check for receipts instead of unlocking the doors.

And the only reason it was so hard to get out after the doors were opened was because the bouncers let in so many people in the first place.

It’s crazy that so many people still flock to Brazil no matter how much sketchy stuff goes on there.
