Sad news. The Ultra Music festival was in full swing over the weekend in Miami, Florida. However, things took a tragic turn when 28 year old security guard Erica Mack, wound up in the ER in extremely critical condition.
According to reports, the 28-year old security guard Erica Mack was trying to keep gate crashers out of the festival near Southeast First Street and Biscayne Boulevard, but they toppled the chain link fence and then trampled the security guard. Mack suffered a broken leg and has severe brain hemorrhaging.She is now in critical condition and fighting for her life.The most upsetting factor in this whole tragic mishap is that hours before incident, police inspectors ordered reinforcements in that area, but they never came.
Miami Fire-Rescue spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll simply said:
“She was doing what she was supposed to do, telling them to stop. When they pushed it down and it fell on top of her… They just trampled her.”
Now, Miami’s homicide cops are looking for witnesses, but have made no arrests. After this, and the incidents at SXSW, Miami mayor Tomas Regalado has said he wants the festival to end, explaining: “I think we should not have Ultra next year here. This incident should never have happened.”
With all the incidents and fatalities occurring at these festivals, would it be such a bad idea if they were to do away with them? We hope victim Erica Mack makes a full and speedy recovery!
