26 injured in scramble for money vouchers in Czech Republic
Prague, April 8 (DPA) Twenty-six people were injured as a crowd scrambled for money vouchers being distributed by a local radio station in southern Czech Republic, officials said Wednesday.
The radio station was handing out 100,000 koruny ($5,000) in vouchers, each worth 50 koruny, at random Tuesday in a show held on a public square in Ceske Budejovice.
