ROTHBURY -- A man and a woman who attended the Rothbury Music Festival in Oceana County over the weekend died from separate medical issues Sunday.

A 33-year-old woman from New York and a 28-year-old man from Ohio suffered medical emergencies hours apart at the Rothbury festival Sunday and later died at Lakeshore Hospital in Shelby, Michigan State Police Lt. Dave Roesler said Tuesday.

The two deaths were separate incidents. Roesler said there is no reason to suspect foul play or anything unusual about the deaths. However, authorities are waiting for toxicology reports from the autopsies, which should be available in about four weeks.

Festival organizers said the woman was accompanied by a service animal and had a previous medical condition. [freep]

It is not clear whether the deaths happened before, during, or after the mini Phish reunion (no disrespect to the dead) (no pun intended).

Yeah, what the fuck is up with that first pic?! She looks ridiculously beautiful and the guy she's with doesn't even look like he's mastered the art of standing straight up yet. It figures.

ridiculously beautiful?

let's not get carried away you can barely see her face. granted she is wearing very little and clearly has a nice figure.

could they set the movie screen up in a worse spot? whoever made that decision needs to be fired.

Pretty sure that's Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of "The Hills" fame in that first photo.

This fest was amazing! So happy to skip Bonnaroo this year for this. Of Montreal put on the best show I have ever seen them play!! EVER!!

It is just to bad you couldn't actually give some good news about the fest, you just had to bring up the unfortunate deaths.

9.01 is unfamiliar with goo balls? man, did you never go to high school and learn to get high properly? come on!
