LA Coliseum promises probe after teen death

Managers of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum are promising a thorough investigation following the suspected drug overdose death of a 15-year-old girl who attended a weekend rave at the venue.

A spokeswoman for California Hospital Medical Center says the girl was in respiratory arrest and non-responsive when an ambulance took her to the emergency room from the rave. She died Tuesday.

The girl was one of two rave attendees who were in critical condition and treated for drug intoxication after attending the weekend's 14th annual Electric Daisy Carnival.

The June 25-26 event drew about 185,000 people to carnival rides, five stages and performances by Moby and Will.I.Am. More than 100 young people were taken to local hospitals, mostly for drug intoxication.
