Death of Thousand Oaks Man at Rave Investigated
I’m Ed Smith, a Thousand Oaks personal injury lawyer. A Thousand Oaks man died while attending the first night of a rave at the electronic music festival held annually in Las Vegas on June 16, 2017. The cause of death has not been ruled on by the Las Vegas County Coroner’s Office yet.
According to Michael Morse’s wife, he had complained about the lines to get water to drink and about the heat. Later, while standing in a line for a ride from the event, he seized and started having convulsions. He was taken to the medical tent at the speedway where he remained for the next four hours, dying there. Because of the heavy traffic congestion, an ambulance reportedly could not get there to offer help. The temperature in Las Vegas that day was 106-degrees Fahrenheit.
