a death at SARS-stock

twenty-five years and one million words
There's a rumor going 'round that SARS-stock may not have been the care-free event everyone made it out to be. Apparently someone coasted across the entry gates in the final stages of a heroin overdose just as the gates opened.
The organizers apparently said, "It happened off site, it doesn't count!" and whisked the whole thing under the carpet. Someone I was speaking to knew one of the medics at the site, and they said it was the only actual medical emergency all day.
Still, a death by OD is a hell of a way to start your day (for a paramedic)!
