Two teenagers die of suspected drug overdoses at HARD Summer
In the midst of a busy music festival weekend, tragedy struck yet another event yesterday. Two teenage girls, ages 18 and 19, collapsed and died of suspected drug overdoses late Saturday afternoon while attending HARD Summer music festival at the Fairplex in Pomona, California according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Officials say after both women were transported to the Pomona Valley Medical Center, one was pronounced dead just after 6pm and the other pronounced dead around 8pm. It is still unclear if the women knew each other.
The identities of both women are being withheld until their family members have been notified. Autopsies have been scheduled to determine the exact causes of death.

Thoughts and condolences to the women’s family members and loved ones.
