Ultra Music Festival has been slapped with a $10 million lawsuit on behalf of a worker who was trampled at the festival this year.
On the first day of the festival, security guard Erica Mack was crushed and critically injured by a hoarde of gate-jumpers trying to break through the security fence around the perimeter of Bayfront Park. Various Miami politicians, including the mayor and city commissioner, subsequently tried to get UMF banned from Miami, citing the incident. Now, Mack is suing the festival organizer to the tune of $10 million. This Monday, she will speak out for the first time since her near-death injury to shed some more light on the nature of the lawsuit.
Ultra has said that “the complaint [Mack’s] lawyers have now filed as part of a lawsuit does not properly recite the facts of the unfortunate accident,” and that “event organizers believe that the incident was caused by illegal actions of unknown third parties for which it is not responsible.”
What do you think? Is Ultra to blame for the trampling?
