Following complete chaos at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami Beach, Fla., the mayor of Miami is calling for an end to it. A security guard was trampled by fans without tickets, who broke through a fence, which landed her in the hospital.
Erica Mack, 28, was taken to a nearby hospital after the incident, with Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado saying she was disoriented but able to breathe on her own and showing signs of improvement.
According to AP, Mayor Regalado was a critic of the 3-day festival even before this incident but he’s now taking as evidence to try and end the festival for good.
Miami Herald notes Mack suffered a broken leg and brain hemorrhaging from the trampling incident.
Although Miami Police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said no one was arrested for the incident involving Mack, in total there were 84 arrests during the 3-day event; 22 on Friday, 33 on Saturday and 29 arrests Sunday.
