In the wake of the death of a California man who attended the first night of Electric Daisy Carnival, the event rolls on, but festival organizers Insomniac are asking patrons to be extra-vigilant in helping each other get medical help when needed.
Montgomery Tsang, 24, of San Leandro, was pronounced dead at University Medical Center Saturday after receiving medical assistance at the festival earlier that morning, according to Fox5 Vegas.
“Look after your group of friends, utilize the buddy system, and if you see something, say something,” reads a statement released by an Insomniac spokesperson Saturday. “No one should ever hesitate to ask any of our medical staff, public safety personnel or Insomniac staff for help, or call 911 in case of an emergency.”
The statement called the death “very tragic.” It comes after the partial cancellation last fall of New York’s Electric Zoo festival, where two people died after taking MDMA, and two deaths linked to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas in 2012.
