City Of Miami Calls For End To Ultra Music Festival
Some of you may have heard about the Ultra security guard that was brutally trampled as some greedy f*cks (pardon my french) decided to force their way into the festival without paying. She is still in critical condition, but stable. Our prayers are with her.
“She was not strong enough to deal with a mob of people that actually pushed this fence down, pushing her backwards and the fence landing on top of her. Now these people started trampling on top of her just to get into the event, as a result she sustained major head trauma as well as a broken leg,” said Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Ignatius Carroll.
Well looks like the City of Miami wasn’t too happy about it. Reports (link this to the article) are now coming in that some city officials are proposing a death sentence to the festival, citing this incident as the last straw:
City of Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff said the situation could have been predicted and prevented as a similar thing happened last year. He’s called for answers, investigations and an end to Ultra in Miami.
All we have to say is… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, but for now, enjoy day 3.
See Ultra’s response:
“The event organizers of Ultra Music Festival share the sentiments of our security partner, CSC, with regard to the condition of Erica Mack, the security guard currently receiving treatment at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The Ultra Family hopes for a swift and full recovery.
The event organizers prohibit any form of unlawful entry in to the event grounds. Preliminary investigations show that the incident was caused by individuals not in possession of event tickets and who were determined to gain unauthorized entry.
Every year the event organizers work collaboratively with police and other municipal partners along with the organizers’ independent security partners to ensure the safety of all patrons, crew and working personnel. Because a thorough investigation is underway, event organizers regret that additional comment cannot be provided at this time. The event coordinators are cooperating fully with investigative authorities.”
