MADRID (AP) - A fifth young woman has died from injuries sustained in a stampede during a Halloween dance party in Madrid arena.

Spanish National Radio said 20-year-old Maria Teresa Alonso died Thursday in Madrid’s Fundacion Jimenez Diaz hospital from brain injuries.

Three young women died in the stampede early Nov. 1 while a fourth woman died days later in another Madrid hospital.

Madrid authorities investigating the tragedy are probing whether the venue’s maximum capacity of 10,600 people was exceeded on the night of the disco party that starred American DJ Steve Aoki.

The stampede occurred in a passageway leading to the central concert area of the Madrid Arena venue.
