A 24-year old woman died after collapsing at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kimchi Truong was taken to an area hospital after collapsing in the taxi area at the festival around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning. She was taken to an area hospital and was pronounced dead on Thursday. Police believe she died from a drug overdose, but it could take six weeks before the coroner receives the official results.

Festival promoter Goldenvoice said in a statement, “Last weekend, a festival attendee suffered an apparent drug overdose. The individual was seen by on-site medical staff and later transferred to JFK Memorial Hospital and later to Desert Regional Medical Center. We are saddened to learn the individual has died. We believe this to be an unfortunate but isolated incident. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends.”

Coachella returns for its second installment this weekend in Indio, CA.
