Gothamist reports that University of New Hampshire junior Olivia Rotondo, 20, told EMS workers that she took six hits of the party drug before collapsing, having a seizure, and then dying. “I just took six hits of Molly,’’ she reportedly told the EMS worker.
Over the weekend, four people were hospitalized for overdoses, and one woman was sexually assaulted. Another overdose death, Jeffry Russ, 20, had no contact with Rotondo during the festival and investigators believe they took a different set of drugs. Concertgoers had complained of harmful pills circulating during the festival, which will refund concertgoers for the canceled day.
