Parents Sue Live Nation After Daughter Dies Following Festival
According to TMZ, parents of a 22-year-old girl who died after consuming drugs at Hard Fest in California are suing Live Nation because of it. Roxanne Ngo died after consuming the drug “Molly” at the festival in 2016, and according to the parents, Live Nation ignored the fact that festival-goers do drugs, and that said drugs cause serious injury or death due to dehydration.
The documents state that after Roxanne took Molly, she got dehydrated because of Live Nation failing to provide enough water outlets and showed clear signs of dehydration before collapsing. Ngo’s parents also claim EMTs were delayed more than an hour because of the huge crowd and the fact that there were only 4 medical stations for over 147,000 concertgoers. They claim their daughter went into full cardiac arrest while waiting for treatment and was pronounced dead the next day at the hospital.
Roxanne’s parents say Live Nation also failed to provide enough cops to curb drug usage, and ignored the history of drug-related deaths at their concerts in the past. The suit claims all of these oversights are due to caring about money and not about the safety of their festival-goers.
