SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The June 28 death of a Portland, Oregon, man who attended the Paradiso Festival at The Gorge Amphitheater has been ruled an accident related to the illegal drug Ecstasy.

The Spokesman-Review reports that 22-year-old Beau Brooks died the morning after the two-day festival, held near George, Washington.

Chelan County Coroner Wayne Harris says the man died of complications of acute MDMA poisoning. MDMA is a stimulant and psychedelic drug, and it raises body temperature.

A second man died after becoming ill at the outdoor electronic dance music showcase. 22-year-old Vivek Pandher died July 4 at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia.

Many of the people who were treated after attending the festival suffered from drug intoxication or heat exhaustion.
