Dolores Flash Rave Goes Awry

Went to Dolores Park today around 3:30 PM and happened upon a flash rave. I asked around and found out it was for a birthday party. A largely high school crowd with all the usuals in attendance: Hula-hoop man, Candy Kid, and the Goblin King of course.

At around 4:30 things took a perilous turn. The music silenced, and when the crowd finally stopped groaning we saw a number of paramedics marching up the 19th street entrance. Amidst the revelry a teenage girl had ODed, and was sprawled on her back across a blanket. Three paramedics set to work with a defibrillator and a stomach pump, and after 11 of the most gut-wrenching minutes I’ve had in an era, she came around. We last saw her loaded into the ambulance, which drove away North on Dolores. Who needs a drink?

Anyone else see anything?

    She was obviously a plant, placed there to add credit to the anti-Dolores Park fun patrol! Is there nothing these parents in Noe valley (and else where) wont do to protect their children from realizing they are being raised in a big city.

    pretty massive response, 2 park ranger cars, a couple of cops, firetruck and then the ambulance….normally there’s an SFFD ambulance, or two even on 18th in front of the high school, I guess not today….

    Cops, always ruining everything. Why can they just let people have fun without always butting in?

    Ravers/burners always ruining everything. Decompression was a month ago.

  7. Damn, I was right in the area and when the music stopped I just figured they were having technical problems, like a failed generator. (Ha,not paying much attention I guess..) When the music came back up there was a fat cheer.

    woah, I saw all the commotion out my window but couldn’t tell what was happening. I hope she learned a lesson and will be o.k.
