ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Coroner’s officials say a 19-year-old woman who died after suffering seizures at a Southern California electronic music festival had tested positive at a hospital for methamphetamine and Ecstasy.

The Orange County Register reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1scyyz7 ) that Emily Tran of Anaheim collapsed Sunday while attending Hard Summer Music Festival at Whittier Narrows Recreation Area.

Coroner’s Lt. Fred Corral says Tran died early Monday at a hospital, where she tested positive for the drugs.

Corral says initial evidence points to a possible overdose as the cause of death. An autopsy is planned.

The sold-out weekend festival drew a crowd of more than 35,000. It moved to Whittier Narrows this year, prompted by construction at its former home, Los Angeles State Historic Park.
