From the Miami Times:

 

Adonis Escoto, 21, passed away in a car parked near the music festival. He and his friends had been attending Ultra since Friday night.  Late Saturday night, however, Escoto suddenly began to feel dizzy.

Adonis Escoto, 21, passed away in a car parked near the music festival. He and his friends had been attending Ultra since Friday night. Late Saturday night, however, Escoto suddenly began to feel dizzy.

“We have no idea what happened,” says aunt Rosa Escoto. “He didn’t take drugs. We think maybe someone put something in his drink without him knowing.”

Adonis started feeling sick Saturday night while at Ultra, she says. His friends, however, thought he had simply drunk too much, and they took him to their car to sober up. When they returned a couple hours later, Escoto was dead, according to his aunt.

A Miami Police spokesman said the department did not have any information on Escoto’s death. A Miami Fire-Rescue official also said he had no knowledge of any deaths at Ultra, although a patient could have passed away after being transported to a hospital. Jackson Memorial Hospital did not return phone calls for comment. Neither did Ultra. We will update as soon as we hear from the music festival.”

 

The Miami PD said they had no information about the cause of death. Ultra has been reached for comment, but has not responded.  If his drink was contaminated, this would be the second time a report of this has happened when last year someone put Anti-freeze in the water and nearly caused an attendees death.

Our thoughts are with the family at the time.  We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
