Gladys Berejiklian rules out pill testing after death at dance party

Officers from Auburn Police Area Command are investigating the circumstances surrounding the 19-year-old man's death and will prepare a report for the Coroner.

A 19-year-old man has died of a suspected overdose and three others remain in critical condition following the Knockout Games Of Destiny Dance Party, a Harder Styles event held yesterday at Sydney's Olympic Park.

A further 13 people were hospitalised following the event, while 130 people had to seek medical treatment during the event.

Two women, 19 and 25, and another man, who has not been identified, were taken to Westmead Hospital and are also believed to have overdosed.

Assistant Commissioner Peter Thurtell said on Sunday that two of the three have since come out of induced comas but remain critical, while the third remains in a coma.

Police said they were not now pursuing charges against the festival owners.

One woman was allegedly found with almost 400 tablets inside her body, while a 25-year-old man allegedly had 145 MDMA capsules in his possession.

He is due to front Parramatta Bail Court today, charged with both drug possession and supply.

A 25-year-old man was allegedly found carrying 145 MDMA capsules, and was also charged with supply prohibited drug and possess prohibited drug.

It is important for Syrians and the global community that the truth comes out. The Russian embassy in Washington hit back at the claims in a Facebook post.

The teenager has since been charged with supply prohibited drug and is due to appear in court early next months.

"I think the key thing here is all the people who use the service had already bought the drugs and already smuggled them in and are already planning on taking them, so we're not going to be increasing drug use". "We will continue to have a strong presence at festivals and dance parties with the well-being and safety of attendees our number one priority".

A Sydney teenager who died from a suspected drug overdose at a music festival has been remembered as "intelligent", as a final video of him dancing emerged on social media.

"The frustrating part is that the offenders themselves aren't learning, which is putting other young lives at risk", Thurtell said.

The Premier said her government would push ahead implementing recommendations to force festival organisers to make these events safer.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Berejiklian was not willing to budge on the issue once again.

"If we thought it would work we would consider it but unfortunately you can not say a pill is safe for every person, every single person's physical attributes are different", Ms Berejiklian said today.

"Everybody's body reacts to chemicals in a different way".

"We absolutely know pill testing reduces harm".
