Daly City, CA—A weekend rave was plagued with overdoses, which killed one man and hospitalized nine others. The apparent ecstasy overdoses has prompted San Mateo County supervisors and police officials to call for a ban on raves at the Cow Palace, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.

On Saturday, May 29, 2010, nearly 16,000 people attended the “Pop 2010: The Dream” festival at the Cow Palace. The rave started at 4 p.m. Saturday, and continued until 2 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities arrested at least 73 people for possession or selling drugs. County Narcotics task force personnel also seized 800 ecstasy pills, which were worth $16,000 on the street.

One ravegoer, Anthony Mata, 23, of Santa Clara was rushed to the San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died. Nine others were also rushed to hospitals for treatment of what officials believed were overdoses.

As of Tuesday, two other ravegoers were still being treated at the hospital. Five others, were treated at Seton Medical Center in Daly City. Others were transported to East Bay hospitals for treatment.

Officials reported that Mata and the hospitalized ravegoers were “suffering injuries consistent with someone taking drugs, dancing and not getting enough water and being in a hot, closed environment.”

Authorities stated that there was no immediate evidence that the ecstasy that the victims ingested was tainted.

Officials are now asking for a ban on the Cow Palace raves.
