Youths Sickened by Drugs at Argentine Music Fest Still Critical

BUENOS AIRES – Three young people, hospitalized after becoming ill from drugs taken at an electronic music festival in the Argentine capital where five other people died, remain in critical but stable condition, authorities said Monday.

The two young men and a woman, ranging in age from 19 to 24 and who have been in treatment at Fernandez Hospital since April 16, remain in intensive care and are breathing with the aid of machines, the municipal health department said.

Another patient, a male being treated at Rivadavia Hospital, is “progressing very favorably.”

No information was available on the condition of a fifth person who was hospitalized after becoming ill at the Time Warp Festival.

Five men between the ages of 20 and 25 died at the event, apparently after taking designer drugs.

Federal Judge Sebastian Casanello, who is directing the investigation, decided last Friday to preventively suspend the production of any private or public event in Buenos Aires by the companies that organized Time Warp.

Time Warp organizer Adrian Conci and 27 other people, including several municipal officials, have been subpoenaed.

Conci’s attorney, Fernando Burlando, on Monday described prosecutor Federico Delgado as “unreasonable” for seeking the arrest of his client, but said that if the appeal presented before the federal court to annul his arrest is unsuccessful, he will turn himself over to the law.

Conci is currently in hiding.
