By now you probably have heard about the passing of an attendee following this weekend’s 21st annual Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas.
The man from California never made it to the hospital and was pronounced dead following the festival. Although his family believes long lines for water at the festival might have played a factor, there has been no official determination as to cause of his death.
Today Insomniac responded to the passing with the following statement:
“The unexpected passing of a loved one is tragic, and while the exact cause of this tragedy is still unknown, we do know that family and friends are grieving. It is with great sadness that we send our thoughts and condolences to the loved ones of the man who passed away after the festival had ended.
Our health and safety plan is created over several months with local agencies. Our roaming medical personnel are available twenty-four hours a day, free of charge, with the best emergency room doctors, nurses, EMTs and paramedics in the country. A full staff of security and police are also available to all attendees. We encourage everyone to approach our caring staff and ask for help if needed.”
The cause of death is still unknown and it may be weeks until we find out what happened.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
