Police say a private security guard has been seriously injured after being trampled by a crowd who stormed the fences around Miami’s Ultra Music Festival.
The Miami Herald reports (http://tinyurl.com/mynwdna ) the unidentified 28-year-old Contemporary Services Corporation guard was hospitalized Friday night with severe brain hemorrhaging.
Police said those storming the fence did not have tickets and were trying to crash the festival where organizers are expecting more than 165,000 people.
Event security has been a frequent concern. The newspaper reports the area where the guard was trampled did not feature sturdier, unclimbable portable fencing used in other areas of the festival.
Miami police spokesman Delrish Moss said they are looking for witnesses.
Meanwhile, 22 others were arrested on the first night of the electronic music fest.
