    Fans Left Injured At Fillmore Concert Venue In Philadelphia

    Fans+Left+Injured+At+Fillmore+Concert+Venue+In+Philadelphia

    May 31st was the Backseat Lovers concert. Their opener was Field Medic, a band with a small yet growing fan base. During the opening set, 5 people collapsed in the crowds. Out of respect, the band paused to acknowledge the situation. The cause of the injuries is unknown but it is possible that it is due to a combination of claustrophobia, dehydration, and heat exhaustion. The venue provided water during the concert by passing cups back from the barricade. This was not very effective as there were too many people to be provided with water. Along with the factor of dehydration, temperatures were abnormally high in the venue, hence heat exhaustion being a contender. Luckily, the employees were able to extract each injured person from the crowd and deliver them to safety.

    Hi, my name is Travis Kusters. I am in 11th grade, my 6th year at Conrad. Both my brothers and cousins, Katie and Bella Kusters have graduated from Conrad. I have my own vegetable garden that I take much pride in. My mom runs a non-profit on the side of her full-time job. The non-profit is in memory of my brother who passed away in June  2017. We are having our 5th annual 5k in support of childhood cancer. The race is held at Rockford park on September 17th.
