Stampede over David Beckham's visit to Chinese university
Retired soccer superstar David Beckham has spent the week in China promoting soccer.
During the fourth day of his trip, he intended to visit Shanghai Tongji University to meet their soccer team, according to Yahoo! Sports.
As Beckham stepped foot on campus, a large crowd built up around him, and before long a stampede commenced.
The Guardian reports three police officers, two university security guards and two students were injured in the fray.
Beckham had to cancel his meeting with the soccer team and he exited campus as quickly as he could.
