1 Dead, 20 Hospitalized At Mad Decent Block Party DC
1 dead, and many others hospitalized. Another music festival in the books, and unfortunately another fatality as well as Mad Decent Block Party makes some not so pleasant headlines. According CBS DC, one man is dead and 19 have been sent to the hospital, mostly drug related cases.
Tyler Fox Viscardi, 20, of Raleigh, N.C, was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital last night, and his death as well appears to be drug related. There was also a 17 year old boy that currently remains in critical condition.
No word on the drug of choice of these festival goers, but somethings gotta give. I don’t remember this many drug related headlines ever, but I know many people that attended/plan to MDPB, so this one hits even closer to home than the rest. In fact, we had the FITA crew there last night, interviewing Flux Pavillion.
But when will kids learn? Step yo game up D.A.R.E program.
Now in it’s 6th year MDBP is an an annual touring festival traveling all across the country. More info here.
