    Per several tweets from New York-area reporters.

    About 40 ambulances dispatched after a fight in the arena. One dead, apparently, but sounds like there could be a lot more. Complete craziness.

    What kind of event? A concert? Boxing match? MMA?

    According to the arena website, a Halloween dance party.

    Newsday is reporting that several kids fainted from some type of illness. Others say the fight and a riot with stabbings. Sounds like there could be a combination. Not sure what's accurate.

    There was an event held here this summer called the Electric Daisy Festival. One guy died during the event and another kid got stoned out of his mind and on the way home, freaked out, jumped out of his buddy's car, ran across the highway and got hit by a truck.

    Why any city wants this shit in their town is beyond me.

    I saw this thread title and thought there were multiple deaths... the word casualty is confusing in that regard.

    Sorry, just used the language that was being tweeted by reporters.
