Dad Blames Electric Daisy Carnival Attendee’s Death on Heat

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A California man is attributing his 20-year-old daughter’s death after she collapsed in a parking lot at the Electric Daisy Carnival to heatstroke and dehydration.

The Clark County coroner in Las Vegas reported Friday that a ruling on the cause of Kenani Kaimuloa’s death is pending.

Her father, Dane Kaimuloa of Temecula, California, tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal his daughter was waiting with friends for a shuttle bus about 6 a.m. Monday when she collapsed.

He said she’d been at the dusk-to-dawn dance music and entertainment festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and that doctors at University Medical Center told him she died of heat-related injuries.

Dane Kaimuloa told The Associated Press in a brief message on Friday that he’s making arrangements to return her body to California.
