Man dies at Penrith music festival
A man has died of a suspected drug overdo while 87 revellers were arrested at the Defqon.1 music festival in Western Sydney last night (Saturday 14th September).
The man apparently suffering a cardiac arrest while 14 other people were taken to hospital suffering from apparent milder drug overdoses.
More than 18,000 people attended the hardcore techno music event at International Regatta Centre in Penrith.
In a statement, police said a 23-year-old presented to the event's medical centre at about noon before his condition deteriorated and he began suffering seizures.
The man was taken to Nepean Hospital by ambulance but died last night after a series of prolonged cardiac episodes.
Most of the 87 arrests were drug-related, except for three who were detained for public order offences.
NSW Police will prepare a report for the Coroner on the man's death.
