90 hospitalized at Chance the Rapper concert
Over 90 people were hospitalized in Connecticut during a Chance the Rapper concert. Cops also made 50 underage drinking referrals at the Friday concert, according to Deputy Chief Brian Foley.
He called it a “busy night” and said most patients were underage and some had severe alcohol intoxication.
“Additional steps will have to be taken to address these issues at these concerts,” he went on to say.
Chance the Rapper is a three-time Grammy Award winner and was performing as part of the lineup for the Hot 93.7’s Hot Jam concert.
“A typical concert is around 20-30 transports. Sixty would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night,” Foley said.
There were so many people that needed assistance that the ambulance provider in Hartford had to find extra help.
