Parents of UCI grad who died at Las Vegas rave sue promoters – Orange County Register

LOS ANGELES — The parents of a 24-year-old UC Irvine graduate who died while attending the Electric Daisy Carnival rave in Las Vegas in 2015 sued the promoters Tuesday, alleging there were inadequate medical personnel present after their son ingested a fatal dose of the drug Ecstasy.

Terry and Gayline Tom filed the case in Los Angeles Superior Court against Insomniac Holdings LLC and Live Nation Entertainment Inc., alleging wrongful death and negligence and seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

Representatives for the promoters could not be immediately reached for comment.

Nicholas Austin Tom, who lived in San Francisco, died June 22, 2015, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where the rave was being held. He graduated from UC Irvine in 2013 with a degree in biological sciences and a minor in psychology and was a medical assistant at UC San Francisco Medical Center.
