A video of the incident, which has gone viral on several social media platforms, shows a packed crowd thronging the Huangshan Mountains in Anhui wearing masks after the provincial government offered free entry to visitors. However, the sudden surge, which was beyond its daily limit of 20,000, forced the government to close the tourist spot, the South China Morning Post reported.
