    My husband was just asking me if there have ever been any deaths at Coachella. I didn't know of any ever until now.

    Walking back to the parking lot Sunday night we saw a dude in VERY bad shape being carried by his buddies. Seemingly unconscious and drooling. I can't help but wonder if this was the guy.

    On saturday, while waiting for the port-a-potty guy to clean up the remaining bathrooms, he said they just found someone OD'd in one of the bathrooms. Don't know if it is the same person

    That's very sad news.

    During Roger Waters we saw a group of people carry a guy out from the crowd. They got him out of the crowd and placed him on the grass until medics arrived. The medics were not able to get a response from him. He was then carried out to who knows where. I wonder if it was him.

    Well... yeah but most likely whatever he did AT Coachella probably ended up killing him

    If he died in the ER on Monday, it probably wasn't directly related to what he was doing at Coachella. Unless they found him at the campground.

    Considering they said he was found unresponsive AT Coachella, then it probably had something to do with being at Coachella. But then, I'm no doctor.

    Unhappy Re: One death confirmed related to festival

    my friends and I camped with Ben this weekend. He made my friend a drink at 6am monday morning and seemed to be fine. I guess he went to bed in his tent and never woke up. We left to go to airport at 11am monday. Out friend said ten min after we left they tried to wake him up and he was unresponsive. He was a good person this is very very sad.

    Ben made me Mai Thais ALL weekend. Any time I asked for one, I had a fresh drink in my hands 5 minutes later. I had only met him Friday.

    I was joking around and asked him for one last Mai Thai as the sun was coming up at about 6 am. As it turned out, Ben fixed up one last drink with the last of the booze.

    I wish the best to all of his great friends and family. Rest in peace.

    On sunday night me and my neighbor andy were up late drinking and looking for his keys. While he was at the lost and found he met a woman who redundantly was looking for her son's campground to pack up his stuff because he was taken to the hospital.

    Yeah, this is very sad. I didn't realize he had been camping. Does anyone have a picture of him, or know what area of the campsite he was in? If anyone hears anything else, I'm sure an update would be much appreciated.

    Also, for those of you that where with him, did it seem like he was intoxicated to the point of alcohol poisioning?

    he was camping offsite at a "private estate" according to:

    http://www.pr-inside.com/year-old-co...es-r564178.htm

    so it was not on the festival grounds, that seriously sucks though, I'm sorry for the loss to all of us to loose a fellow attendee...
