Woman Collapses At SoCal Electronic Music Festival, Dies

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Coroner’s officials say a 19-year-old woman who died after suffering seizures at a Southern California electronic music festival had tested positive at a hospital for methamphetamine and Ecstasy.

The Orange County Register reported Tuesday that Emily Tran of Anaheim collapsed Sunday while attending Hard Summer Music Festival at Whittier Narrows Recreation Area.

Coroner’s Lt. Fred Corral says Tran died early Monday at a hospital, where she tested positive for the drugs.

Corral says initial evidence points to a possible overdose as the cause of death. An autopsy is planned.

The sold-out weekend festival drew a crowd of more than 35,000. It moved to Whittier Narrows this year, prompted by construction at its former home, Los Angeles State Historic Park.
