This is just horrible!
The Ultra Music Festival is taking place down in Miami, but things got out of control on Friday night, and now a security guard is in “extremely critical condition.”
28-year old security guard Erica Mack was trying to keep gate crashers out of the festival near Southeast First Street and Biscayne Boulevard, but they toppled the chainlink fence and then trampled the security guard.
Miz Mack suffered a broken leg and has severe brain hemorrhaging.
And it gets worse because hours before the incident, the police inspectors ordered reinforcements in that area, but they never came.
Miami Fire-Rescue spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll simply said:
“She was doing what she was supposed to do, telling them to stop. When they pushed it down and it fell on top of her… They just trampled her.”
Now, Miami’s homicide cops are looking for witnesses, but have made no arrests.
After this, and the incidents at SXSW, Miami mayor Tomas Regalado has said he wants the festival to end, explaining:
“I think we should not have Ultra next year here. This incident should never have happened.”
Hopefully they find some of the people responsible for this truly senseless crime soon, and we wish Miz Mack a speedy recovery.
Hang in there, gurl!
