Teen Dies From Seizure On Last Day Of Lollapalooza Music Festival

Music festivals are easily one of the best parts of the summer, but unfortunately, they can sometimes end with tragedy as did this year’s Lollapalooza Chicago festival. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a 16-year-old boy named Evan Kitzmiller sadly passed away yesterday on the festival’s last day. Evan was reportedly found unconscious Sunday and was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

Police did not release any further details about Evan’s cause of death, but his mother says he suffered a seizure and his heart stopped. The festival released a statement saying the teen and his family “are in our thoughts.”
