A British soldier was found dead Sunday morning in Miami after attending the Ultra Music Festival.
Private Shaun Cole, 22, was attending the festival with two friends. His body was discovered in the Upper East Side community of Miami. The cause of death is unknown, however, police are investigating foul play due to an apparent head injury.
In a separate incident, an Ultra attendee was left in critical condition after being struck by a car nearby the festival’s site at Bayfront Park.
This latest tragedy means for the third consecutive year, an attendee of Ultra has died over the course of the festival weekend. A 20-year-old attendee succumbed to a drug overdose in 2013, and last year, a 21-year-old man was found dead inside a car parked at a festival lot.
Following last year’s incident, the city of Miami attempted to ban further installments of Ultra outright, but later agreed to allow the festival to return after organizers agreed to impose new safety protocol.
