More than 90 concertgoers were hospitalized during Chance the Rapper’s concert in Connecticut due to ‘excessive drinking’.
Hartford Police Deputy Chief Brian Foley described the event a “busy night, saying most patients were underage concertgoers who suffered severe alcohol intoxication.
“Additional steps will have to be taken to address these issues at these concerts,” he added
The police also said the crowd was composed of people in their late teens and early 20s who engaged in tailgating, partying and excessive alcohol consumption.
On the other hand, Fire Capt. Raul Ortiz said the number of victims were so high, Hartford’s ambulance provider had to seek extra help and send other patients to hospitals in Farmington, Manchester and New Britain.
