Miami, FL – Three Hospitalized After Illness Spreads at Festival on 24th Ave
Miami, FL (October 9, 2023) – An outdoor event in Northwest Miami-Dade ended abruptly after authorities responded to reports of multiple people becoming sick.
The incident occurred at the 9th annual Afrikin Diaspora Fundraising Festival event at 5094 NW 24th Avenue in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Both the City of Miami Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue were dispatched to the scene, later reporting it as a level two mass casualty incident.
Police were then called over and identified it as a safety concern because of the number of people at the event, according to MDFR.
Multiple patients were on scene, and units were staged to assess patients. Three patients with non-life-threatening injuries have been reportedly transported to local area hospitals.
Information on what caused people to become ill has not been released yet.
