More sad news from the EDM festival front with the reports of a young attendee dying at this year’s HARD Summer event.
A HARD Summer spokesperson has responded to the news of the attendee’s death (viaL.A. Weekly):
During Sunday evening’s event held at the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, a patron had seizures and sadly passed away at the hospital this morning. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Our guests’ safety and well being is of great importance at every event. We have skilled EMT’s, law enforcement and security staff deployed on site to respond to any emergency situation and last night members of this emergency team were with this patron within minutes and she was promptly transported after receiving the initial call. We work closely with local health and safety authorities to prepare for emergencies and set the staffing levels for each event.
