David Beckham is used to crazed fans, but Thursday in Shanghai was probably the most wild he's ever seen them. Fans at Tongji University in Shanghai were so eager to see the soccer superstar that they jumped a security fence in an effort to get his autograph or just catch a glimpse at the recently retired Beckham. Five security guards were injured in the stampede along with two other civilians.
