A young woman has died after collapsing at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last weekend. Kimchi Truong was in the taxi area when she collapsed at around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning and was then taken to a nearby hospital according to a report from Consequence of Sound. On Thursday she was pronounced dead.
Police believe that Truong died from a drug overdose, but it could be six weeks before the coroner delivers official results.
Festival promoter Goldenvoice released a statement saying: “Last weekend, a festival attendee suffered an apparent drug overdose. The individual was seen by on-site medical staff and later transferred to JFK Memorial Hospital and later to Desert Regional Medical Center. We are saddened to learn the individual has died. We believe this to be an unfortunate but isolated incident. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends.”
The performances at Coachella will resume this weekend in Indio, CA.
