Bosse adds further that the age group of those who required assistance were between 16 and 25.

Social media manager for Boston Public Health Commission, McKenzie Ridings, said a Level 2 Mass Casualty incident has been declared at the venue. So far no fatalities have been reported, but the local hospitals have been notified for the potentiality of 11-30 incoming patients so as they are well prepared for the influx.

At around 8:30 p.m. two people were first spotted in need of medical help. At around 10:30 p.m. a tweet from Boston station WHDH reporter Tim Caputo read at least fifteen ambulances were lined up in the staging areas outside the TD Garden.

Later a released statement from Live Nation spokesperson said majority of the transports were those from outside the venue who were not allowed to enter, but he also mentioned that the story is still developing.

Bosse meanwhile mentions that several attendees entered the venue intoxicated.

There was a limit of only one-beer at the venue.

In 2013 too several people were hospitalized for similar reasons attending his show at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
