One woman dead, another in coma after Stereosonic

ONE woman has died, another is in an induced coma and almost 70 revellers were charged with drug offences at the Stereosonic music festival at Sydney Olympic Park.

Police say a 25-year-old woman from Oyster Bay became seriously ill during the festival on Saturday and later died in Concord Hospital.

A 22-year-old woman, believed to be from Britain, was taken to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition and placed in an induced coma. She was in a serious but stable condition on Sunday.
