EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Rave Girl’s Parents Suing Concert Promoter Over Her Death
The court docs allege that Sasha Rodriguez attended the rave without her parents’ permission on June 26, 2010 and that while at the concert, she consumed MDMA, otherwise known as ecstasy.
Shortly after taking the drugs Sasha began experiencing symptoms of an overdose, “the over crowded and under staffed conditions at the EDC delayed the response of on-site security and emergency services by providers to her by approximately 20 minutes. During this time her condition worsened,” the lawsuit claims.
When Sasha finally arrived via ambulance to the hospital “she was non verbal with saliva bubbling at the corners of her mouth. Shortly after arriving at the emergency room she suffered a seizure and experienced an acute respiratory failure.
“She was intubated for the acute respiratory failure and admitted to the intensive care unit in a comatose state. Her condition did not improve,” the court docs state.
Sasha’s parents ultimately had to make the heartbreaking decision to take her off of life support. They are seeking unspecified damages.
