Hillsborough disaster

The Hillsborough disaster was a human crush that occurred on 15 April 1989 at Hillsborough, a football stadium, the home of Sheffield Wednesday F.C. in Sheffield, England, resulting in the deaths of 96 people, and 766 being injured, all fans of Liverpool F.C. It remains the deadliest stadium-related disaster in British history and one of the worst ever international football accidents.
The match, an FA Cup semi-final tie between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, was abandoned six minutes into the game.
Please spare a thought and a prayer this coming Friday for the people who lost their lives on that tragic sunny day in April in 1989.
