Injured Sabbath Fan Blames Security
A Black Sabbath fan who wound up with a serious injury at Lollapalooza blames the festival's lack of proper security. Cindy Glaser, 39, was watching Sabbath on Friday when gatecrashers lived up to their name and smashed down a row of double-fencing and ran into Cindy from behind. "A kid bent me in half. His head hit my husband's head and he hit me in the back of the neck and bent my head forward," she told the Chicago Sun Times. Police ran to the scene and managed to cuff three of the mob of 20 who broke through the fence, and that one of their officers was also injured in the scuffle. "If there were kids who wanted to break in, they should have been stopped before they had a chance to hurt us," said Glaser who spent $200 on tickets to go with her Sabbath-mad husband. "Instead, I spent the evening in the emergency room." Bob O'Neil is President of the Grant Park Conservancy, and says he heard of only two gatecrashing incidents during the festival. "I would prefer to have no incidents of gate crashing. But, it's almost impossible to have zero incidents when you have 270,000 people on 120 acres over three days given how spontaneous and quickly they do it," he said. But O'Neil appears to take his conservancy job a little too seriously: "It's unfortunate the person was injured. But overall, I'm satisfied. Little or no landscaping was destroyed."
