This weekend, five attendees were reported to have overdosed at Escapade Music Festival last night. Located in Ottawa, Canada, the music festival is completely against drug use at their event. However, their staff was trained to handle situations such as these.
Out the five reported attendees, one was reported to be in serious condition and another in critical. The others were reported to have suffered a minor overdose. The overdoses were reported to be caused by a drug known as GHB.
Thankfully, there were no deaths related to these incidents. As day 2 finishes up, let's hope that every attendee is safe today.
