Lollapalooza festival-goer dies for second straight year

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) -- Officials say a Lollapalooza festival-goer has died for the second year in a row.

Melissa Stratton, a spokeswoman for Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications, says the attendee was taken from the event in critical condition Saturday night and died at a hospital. She says the circumstances surrounding the death are still being investigated.

The four-day music festival was held in Grant Park.

Last year, 16-year-old Evan Kitzmiller, of Mundelein, died after being found unresponsive at Lollapalooza. His mother said he had a seizure and his heart stopped.
