The dire situation at the Kabul, Afghanistan airport turned deadly Saturday after a stampede of desperate people attempting to flee the Taliban’s oppressive rule reportedly crushed some to death.

Sky News global correspondent Stuart Ramsay was on the ground outside of the Hamid Karzai International Airport — where he reported seeing the frustrated crowd trying to get inside descend into chaos.

“At the front of the queue people were being crushed to death,” he wrote.

Paratroopers began pulling people from the crowd in the wake of the violence and medics attended to the wounded, the outlet reported.

White blankets were observed being placed over bodies, the report said.

The New York Times reported that a 2-year old girl was trampled to death outside of the airport in a stampede around 2 p.m. on Saturday morning when the crowd surged toward the gates.

“My heart is bleeding,” the girl’s mother, a former employee of a US. organization in Kabul, told the Times. “It was like drowning and trying to hold your baby above the water.”

The US Embassy said on Saturday that American citizens in Afghanistan should stay away from Kabul’s airport, the only way out, “because of potential security threats outside the gates.”

The advisory directly contradicted President Biden’s insistence on Friday that Americans could proceed to the airport freely.

At least a dozen people have been killed at the Kabul airport mayhem, with disturbing scenes of people falling to their deaths while clinging onto outbound US military planes last week.
