via DallasNews.comUPDATE: The Dallas County Medical Examiner says the person who died was 19-year-old Andrew James Graf or Argyle. Dallas Fire-Rescue originally said the deceased was a 15-year-old boy, but that appears to be an error on their part.
15-year-old 19 year old died and more than two dozen others who were at the Electric Daisy Carnival at Fair Park were hospitalized because of drugs, alcohol and heat-related health problems, authorities said.
No information was immediately available on what may have caused the death of the teen boy who was at the rave, which gained notoriety after the death of a teen girl at the same event in Los Angeles last year.
In addition to the Saturday death, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said "Approximately 25-30 people were taken to local hospitals with a multitude of emergencies related to either drug or alcohol use and even heat related issues."
Authorities described a chaotic scene at Fair Park that began with calls for paramedics about 9 p.m. and ended early this morning.
"At one time there were at least 10 different rescue units responding to the event at once, with a number of Emergency Medical Services Supervisors and engine companies for manpower," Evans said. "The chaos finally came to a rapid stop when someone pulled a fire alarm around 1:30 a.m. and sent those that remained scattering."
