A witness told Daily Mail Australia of the man’s struggle to stay conscious before being rushed away by paramedics. 

‘He was sitting there struggling so the medics came over and watched him. He couldn’t keep his head up and there was sweat pouring off him,’ the festival goer said.

‘Then he rolled his eyes and just fell sideways and they got the stretcher. 

‘Hopefully he doesn’t die or we’ll all be in trouble.’

At the Electric Gardens Festival in Centennial Park, two men, aged 26 and 38, were rushed to Prince of Wales Hospital in a serious condition along with a woman, 24, who is in a non-critical condition. 

NSW Health confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that drugs were a ‘likely factor’ in each of the hospitalisations.
