LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 21-year-old man who came to Las Vegas for the Electric Daisy Carnival was taken to the hospital before making it to the event and has since died.

Officials say Joey Saychack of Fresno, California died at Spring Valley Hospital on Wednesday.

Clark County Assistant Coroner John Fudenberg says a cause of death hasn't been determined and isn't expected until lab reports are complete in the next 4-6 weeks.

Fudenberg said Saychack was found unresponsive in a Las Vegas house he had rented with a group that was attending the rave. He was taken to the hospital on Friday.

The death is the third reported among people in town for this year's event, which drew more than 130,000 people each night and ran from Friday night to Monday morning.
