LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County coroner’s office says a 15-year-old girl who collapsed during the Electric Daisy Carnival rave in June died as the result of an ecstasy overdose.

Coroner spokesman Ed Winter said Tuesday that Sasha Rodriguez died of complications of the drug and that her death was an accident.

Rodriguez was pronounced dead at California Hospital Medical Center on June 29, just days after she arrived at the hospital in a coma. She had been taken by ambulance from the rave at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The Electric Daisy Carnival about 185,000 people on June 25-26 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.
