15-year-old girl dead after working Louder Than Life festivalLouder Than Life

A 15-year-old girl died while working at Louisville, Kentucky rock festival, Louder Than Life. After working as a barbecue vendor at the event earlier in the day, Trinity Jackson died upon suffering sudden breathing fits on the evening of September 28. She suffered from asthma, according to her mother, Brandi Moorman.

“I saw her take her last gasp of air, in my arms, on the ground of the Fair and Expo Center,” Moorman said.

Though Moorman says her daughter received care at the festival’s medical tent after the respiratory difficulties began, she continued wheezing until she stopped breathing altogether.

“I was carrying my daughter through the crowd while Guns N’ Roses was playing,” Moorman says. “I was just running as fast as I could to get through the crowd. I needed to get out [of] the gate. I needed help.”

Jackson was taken to Norton Children’s Hospital in an ambulance, where she was pronounced dead. Doctors told Moorman that Jackson’s heart had stopped 36 minutes prior to her arrival at the hospital. The Louisville Metro Police Department’s homicide unit is currently investigating Jackson’s death. Official autopsy results have not been released.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, whose privacy we wish to respect,” a representative of the festival told Louisville news outlet, WLKY. “We are cooperating with local agencies as they conduct an investigation related to a medical transport from the festival on Saturday night.”

A 27 year-old male lost his life at the Bonnaroo campgrounds over the weekend, according to festival organizers. The annual Tennessee gathering had begun earlier in the week on June 13, and reports of the death began circulating on June 15.

The victim had been unresponsive at his camp by the time medics had been called over, according to reports, and was later pronounced dead upon his arrival to the hospital. Organizers had also advised the media that the victim had an underlying medical condition that was implied as being the main cause behind the passing. Bonnaroo spokeswoman Ann Ewing had no commentary to offer the media when they reached out for more information but offered this statement instead:

“The well-being of our patrons, staff, volunteers and artists is our primary concern, and we work diligently to ensure the safest festival possible. Earlier today, our medical team in Plaza 11 was asked to respond to a medical situation in a nearby campsite. The Bonnaroo Medical team and Coffee County Emergency Services were on the scene within minutes.”

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
