Security Investigated For Alleged Drug Use After Guard Hospitalized During Festival

SYDNEY, Australia (CelebrityAccess) — The company who provided security for the Stereosonic festival in Sydney is investigating claims that one of its security staff was hospitalized after taking drugs at the event. The investigation comes after one attendee, 25-year-old Syliva Choi collapsed, and later died, allegedly after taking the drug ecstasy at the festival.

According to the Australian Associated Press, Simon Austin, managing director of Red Dawn Security, has said that the company will fully cooperate with authorities in the investigation after one of its employees was taken to the hospital after allegedly taking the drug GHB.

'Red Dawn Security takes the allegations very seriously and has launched a full internal investigation regarding the alleged behaviour of one of our contracted security guards at Stereosonic on the weekend,' Mr Austin said in a statement on Tuesday.

'We do not condone any of our staff abandoning their posts or taking illicit substances with patrons either during or after a shift," Austin added. – Staff Writers
