TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The National Child Protection Commission (KPAI) is still recording data on the number of children treated for injuries following the crowd crush at Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang district, East Java, on October 1, 2022.

"We continue to coordinate with the Health Office, the Women's Empowerment and Child Protection Office, including finding out children with minor injuries," said Jasra Putra, head of the supervision, monitoring, and evaluation division of KPAI, on Wednesday.

The data is being collected because there are no separate data for child and adult victims, while the number of children who died in the incident has been recorded at 33, he explained.

KPAI suspects that during the tragedy, there were children who suffered minor injuries but just went straight home.

According to him, the whereabouts of these children must also be traced so that they can be provided psychological assistance.

"What is the condition of the other children, even though the situation they faced is the same. This means that many children have gone straight home, even though they need recovery after the incident," he said.

The commission is also still tracking children who were orphaned in the Kanjuruhan tragedy.

"We are still investigating these data, whether (the deceased) had children," Putra said.

Based on data from the Malang District Health Office, the Kanjuruhan incident caused 131 deaths and caused 440 people to sustain minor injuries and 29 people to be seriously injured.

The Kanjuruhan tragedy unfolded after spectators, who were angered by Arema FC’s 2-3 loss to Persebaya Surabaya in the Indonesian League 1 match on October 1 evening, tried to storm the pitch. The ensuing chaos prompted security personnel to fire tear gas, which stirred panic among spectators who rushed to leave the stadium.
