24-year-old collapses at Scottish festival
A music fan died at T In The Park last night (July 9), police have confirmed.
24-year-old David Catto, from Stonehaven, collapsed while on his way from the main arena to the campsite, reports BBC News. Police officers attempted to resuscitate him, though they were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Tayside Police said Catto‘s family had visited the site, in Balado, Kinross, in the early hours of the morning, and were now being comforted. A post-mortem is due to be carried out next week.
A T In The Park spokesperson told NME that police investigations into Catto‘s death were ongoing.
The music festival has this year launched a new initiative called Citizen T, encouraging campers to look our for their neighbours while on site. The three-day festival will this year see upwards of 85,000 music fans attend to watch the likes of Kasabian, Eminem and Jay-Z over the weekend.
