A 13-year-old girl was crushed to death and dozens were injured when a practical joker gave a false fire alarm in a packed Philippine cinema during a screening of "Do Not Revive the Dead," Philippines police officials said Monday. Dozens were injured when about 500 people watching the Filipino horror film stampeded for the exits at a suburban Manila cinema on Saturday night. Police said the trampled body of Ailene Ojas was found under a seat and that the unidentified practical joker had escaped in the confusion.
