Two died and many more were hospitalized over the weekend at the Mad Decent Block Party in Maryland.

According to CBS Baltimore, the concert, which was held Aug. 1 at the Merriwether Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md., included multiple hospitalizations — 20 at first report — plus, initially, one death.

Tyler Viscardi, 20, reportedly died of a drug overdose after being rushed from the festival. He was pronounced dead at 9 p.m. Police are unsure what drugs Viscardi took to cause the fatal overdose.

Later, another death was reported, though the name of the victim, a male, has been withheld because he was 17 years old. He was reportedly from Woodbridge, Va.

Diplo, who helped create the Mad Decent Block Party, took to his Twitter Saturday afternoon (Aug. 2) to express his condolences.
