Security guard trampled at Music Festival

Miami -

City officials say a private security guard has severe brain hemorrhaging after being trampled by a crowd at Miami's Ultra Music Festival.
    
The Miami Herald reports 28-year-old Erica Mack was hospitalized Friday night after fans without tickets broke through some flimsy fencing and trampled her to the ground.
    
Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado said Sunday that Mack was breathing on her own but was disoriented and confused.
    
He blamed the organizers of the three-day electronic music festival for failing to properly secure the venue.
    
The mayor planned to investigate whether a problem with fencing constituted a breach of contract that could help them push the long-running show out of Miami.
    
Regalado has been a vocal critic of the festival, and has repeatedly said he doesn't want Miami to host it again.
