One Man Dies at Juggalo Festival

In Hardin County, officials say one person has died at the Gathering of the Juggalos.

The Hardin County Coroner says a 24-year-old male died yesterday during the third day of the festival, which runs through Sunday. She has not released the name pending family notification.

Three people have died at the festival in the last three years, one because of heat stroke, another because of a drug overdose, and someone drowned while trying to swim in the Ohio River in 2011.

Police say the festival is expected to bring around 10,000 people.
