As is common in panic situations, many patrons attempted to exit through the main entrance, the same way they had entered. The building’s main entrance was a single revolving door, rendered useless as the panicked crowd scrambled for safety. Bodies piled up behind both sides of the revolving door, jamming it to the extent that firefighters had to dismantle it to enter. Later, after fire laws had tightened, it would become illegal to have only one revolving door as a main entrance without being flanked by outward opening doors with panic bar openers attached, or have the revolving doors set up so that the doors could fold against themselves in emergency situations.Source

--- TSA rolls out ’detention pods’ that trap passengers inside From: MailOnline
Not content with the tight security in place at many of the nations airports, the TSA is now funding the roll-out of exit pods at major airport terminals across the country.
The pods temporarily detain passengers before they are allowed to leave.
Travelers are forced through the pods as the leave the airport terminal before a robotic voice gives instructions to wait inside the pod until a green light is shown and the door opens.
Once travelers exit the pods, they are unable to re-enter the terminal.
The pods have already been installed at Syracuse International Airport as part of a $60 million dollar renovation.
There are plans for the pods to be installed at other major airports soon.
