Man Attending Electric Daisy Carnival Dies

LAS VEGAS (June 22, 2014) A California man who was attending the huge electronic music party, the Electric Daisy Carnival, in Las Vegas died Saturday morning after he was taken to a hospital.

The Clark County coroner's office identified the man as Montomery Tsang, 24, of San Leandro, Calif.

The cause of his death wasn't immediately announced.

Event producer Insomniac issued a statement saying it was "deeply saddened" by the death and hoped attendees would do their part to keep the weekend-long gathering safe.

Organizers estimate 134,000 people attended the opening night Friday.

Las Vegas police say of nearly 250 mostly minor medical calls the first night, only five resulted in trips to the hospital.

They also reported 29 drug-related felony arrests.

The event was criticized in Los Angeles in 2010 after a 15-year-old girl's fatal drug overdose.
