QUINCY, Wash. (AP) - A second concert-goer has died after falling ill while attending a music festival in central Washington last month.

The British Columbia Coroners Service says 22-year-old Vivek Pandher died Sunday at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia.

The service’s Barbara McLintock says a cause has not been determined yet but coroners are looking at heat, hyperthermia and other factors.

McLintock says Pandher was found unresponsive at a music festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy. He seriously ill and was hospitalized at Confluence Health-Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. Because he was recently living in Vancouver, B.C., he was transferred on June 30 to a hospital in that city.

The Grant County sheriff’s office has said a 22-year-old Portland, Oregon, man also died after attending the Paradiso electronic music festival. The sheriff’s office said it’s investigating the death of Beau Brooks, who died June 28 at a Wenatchee hospital.
