    Default Does anyone know @ Fastboy Slim - guy that got really sick - what happened? Is he ok?

    Just wondering if anyone was at the Fatboy Slim set and saw that guy - I think having a seizure. His friend was desperately trying to get him out of the crowd. They were too far for me to help but I was so shaken by what I saw, I had to leave the show. And I couldn't get him out of my mind. Anyone know if he was ok???

    The person I saw was definitely a guy. But wow - these stories make me really sad.

    Thanks for the reply @jarriff1985

    Not the same guy - but on Sunday I went by the medic tents with a friend, and saw a guy come in on a stretcher - face down - vomiting foam and also having seizures. The guy had taken 10 pills, cocaine and two hits of acid. He ended up being alright after being hooked up to an IV and monitored. He looked worse than death.

    Another guy however was taken to a hospital - and they closed his tent / bed chamber off, since he'd vomited blood all over it.

    Going to the medic tents in the campgrounds is a different sort of chella experience - Scary Chella.

    I don't get it... what that fuck is wrong with some people?

    I'm all for legalizing certain drugs and promoting a responsible use and people like this make it really hard to go to our reps and make that case.

    i had to go to the Medical Tent for a little clean up on a scraped knee. i saw the work they do and they do a great job of giving care to those in need. Hopefully none of us are in a situation to require medical attention while at Coachella. In the event you do, awesome people will be helping you. Please don't put yourself there by being stupid though by putting way too much of substances in your body. i like to think people who choose to drink or do drugs must have had some learning curve and should know what is too much, but we all know that isn't the case with some sadly.

    In all of my Coachella years I've never heard so many ambulances go by our house as they did this year's...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I wonder if there are statistics of that for every year.

    Saturday evening of weekend 2 on the road next to the outdoor stage there was a guy tripping balls who was being held down by EMTs. Not sure what entirely happened but from what I heard he started getting violent, and when confronted by security instigated physical contact. They brought in EMTs and I saw them get out an IV.

    It's surprising with the sheer number of people obviously there for the first time and going out of their minds with the freedom there aren't far more instances of this.

    I was sitting inside the tent and medic went into his area and closed the canvas curtain.
    The partition was literally a canvas curtain. It wasn't hard to overhear.

    Can you describe that person? Do you remember the color of his shirt, or hair color? I'm curious because I may know that person.

    Friday night weekend 2, during Chromeo, some dude lying on the ground with a red shirt security suddenly appeared before me. I think he ate wayyyyyyy too much molly, (rubbing his hair, rolling on the ground, rubbing against the grass), dude was way too out of it for it to end well. He kept trying to flee the scene and started taking off his clothes, more security came and he started physically resisting. they let some girl from the crowd try pin him down, (or maybe she just joined? was still trying to watch the show) but it didn't work. More red and blue shirts come, and they're forcibly pulling his shorts back over his ass. then the PD came and took him away.

    Saturday during Queens of the Stone Age this obnoxious tripping girl in pink hotpants was running around shouting nonsense in people's faces. I think she was trying to start a fight, the last I saw she aggressively threw water on some group that was just chilling and ran into the crowd. I wonder if someone ended up clocking her.

    Yeah, that was me. I ended up okay, it was a relatively mild seizure. I had just partied a little too hard and that in combination with the lack of sleep, poor diet, lights, loud noise, and strenuous physical exertion was too much I guess. We went to the med tent and they hydrated me, took my blood pressure, and after about 30 minutes I was all good.

    LOL, Murphy is my dog's name. I was wearing a white and green hawaiin reyn spooner shirt (which I may have taken off at that point) and dark grey shorts, and the friend in question with me was a fairly large redhead with a beard, if OP or anyone who thinks they witnessed it wants to verify what they remember seeing. Makes no difference though, I know it was me regardless :P.

    I almost clocked that bitch. Walking away from the Queens set she jumped in front of my group and screamed directly in our faces, pushing one of us. Out of her mind this girl

    The only weekend I've never had to help someone out was Weekend 1 this year. It's hot and people make bad decisions.
