How Many Arrested? Hospitalized?
Sorry, but these numbers rival certain years of the Billiken parade and the Southside Parade:
- To prepare for Lollapalooza weekend, Lurie Children's Hospital added extra staff and equipment to handle a higher patient load, based on past experience with the three-day music festival in Grant Park.
The Streeterville hospital treated 33 concertgoers mostly for alcohol and drug abuse over the weekend, said Dr. Walter Eppich, an attending physician in Lurie’s emergency department. Some of the teenagers were two to three times the legal alcohol limit to drive after mixing hard liquor with marijuana, ecstasy or cocaine, Eppich said.
[...] Thirty-four people were arrested and 238 concertgoers were sent to area hospitals during Lollapalooza, which was shortened by about an hour on Sunday after Grant Park was evacuated ahead of an afternoon storm.
At least no one got shot, right?
