(Radio.com) While tens of thousands of ticket-holding EDM fans enjoyed the first day of the Miami's Ultra Music Festival, gatecrashers stormed perimeter fences and trampled a security guard, leaving her in critical condition.

According to the Miami Herald, the 28-year-old female guard is hospitalized with severe brain hemorrhaging and a broken leg, and was reportedly bleeding from the ears while being treated by medical personnel at the scene.

The tragic episode occurred at Southeast First Street and Biscayne Boulevard when a mob of people overran a section of chain link fence that had not been reinforced with additional security fencing, trampling the guard in the process.

Miami Mayor Tomαs Regalado was fast to respond to the situation, criticizing Ultra promoters and denouncing the entire event: "I think we should not have Ultra next year here," Regaldo said. "This incident should never have happened." more on this story
