Harvard police cut short a pep rally and Girl Talk concert Thursday after the crowd became unruly, crushing bodies to the front of the stage and eventually throwing glow sticks at event organizers, the Harvard Crimson

reports. At least one person reported hyperventilating in the mob, and several others crawled under the stage to escape harm.

Hundreds of fans braved the sub-freezing weather to attend the pre-Harvard-Yale game event, ultimately dubbed by one student to be the "most unsuccessful successful show ever."
