Greece Man Dies At NYC Music Festival

The final day of a music festival in New York City was canceled after the death of two people, including one man from the Rochester area.
The New York Police Department says Jeffrey Russ, 23, of Greece and a woman from Providence, Rhode Island died at the festival. City officials added that both deaths appear to be related to drugs, either ecstacy or "molly."

Four other people were hospitalized during the Electric Zoo Festival. It's a music festival held on Labor Day weekend on the city's Randall's Island.

The festival released the following statement on the incidents:

"The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today."
