39-year-old Man Dies at Lollapalooza
Sad news from Lollapalooza this weekend. 39-year-old Jeffrey Grimm of Oak Park passed away Friday after collapsing around 12:30pm at the Bud Stage. This is the first death at Lollapalooza since the festival became a yearly destination event in Grant Park.
Grimm was transported by ambulance to Northwestern Memorial Hospital around 1:00pm in cardiac arrest. Chicagoist editor-in-chief Marcus Gilmer was in the crowd, and posted to his Twitter account as the situation was happening.
Our thoughts go out to Grimm’s family, and we hope we don’t have to report anymore sad news from the festival this weekend, where crowds are encouraged to pay special attention to the weather, since Chicago is under a heat advisory all weekend, with temperatures inching upwards towards the 90s with heat indexes in the 100 range.
