Erica Mack Discusses Ultra Lawsuit

On Friday, March 28, 2014, Erica Mack, a 29-year-old security guard working Ultra Music Festival was critically injured when she was trampled by a stampeding horde of gatecrashers.

"I suffered two fractures in my skull. A temporal fracture and a fracture at the base of my skull," she tells Crossfade, recalling the condition in which she awoke at Jackson Memorial Hospital, after blacking out during the incident. "There was bleeding on the brain. Also, I had bleeding out of my ear."

And she adds: "I also sustained a multiple break in my leg. They had to perform surgery, and there's metal plates and screws supporting the leg now."
