Over 100 people hospitalized during LA festival
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities say more than 100 people were taken to local hospitals during a two-day electronic music festival and rave at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park.
The LA Fire Department says some of the injuries occurred as people rushed barriers Saturday to try and overwhelm security and get inside the 14th annual Electric Daisy Carnival, which featured rides and five stages with performances by Moby and Will.I.Am.
Paramedics were at the event, which drew 185,000 people Friday and Saturday. On Friday, 94 incidents were reported, 52 of which were injured people who were taken to hospitals. On Saturday, 132 incidents were reported, 62 of which required transportation to hospitals.
The extent of the injuries was not known.
