Jamie Fretz Can someone explain to me how they died? I’m reading cardiac arrest. How do 8 seemingly healthy young adults all die from cardiac arrest? I’m assuming they were trampled on? But how does that translate to cardiac arrest? I’m genuinely asking. Either way it’s heartbreaking.
CultureBrothersNFT My boys and I were there. It got pretty scary during the beginning and we’re pretty tanky and big. We waited early to get good spots. It wasn’t too bad until the concert started. We got squished like bugs. So many abusive people.
