GEORGE, Wash. – One person is dead and dozens of others were treated at hospitals after they apparently overdosed on drugs at the Paradiso Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre.

KOMO-TV reports many attendees of the Saturday concert who took a powerful form of ecstasy known as “Molly” had to be treated for overdose.

Officials at Quincy Valley Medical Center say the patients ranged in age from 18 to 26.

The name of the man who died hasn’t been made public.
