An electronic dance concert took a scary turn Wednesday night. Dozens of teenagers were taken to Boston hospitals after ingesting a "dangerous substance." It was a nightmare for some parents as they waited for the news: (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED PARENT, SAYING: "On our way out, we were talking to the EMT's and I asked 'what's going on?' And he said 'a lot of intoxication.' (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "Somebody had told him some OD's. It was said there was a lot of drug use going on." An EMS worker said there were no fatalities, and all of the patients' symptoms were minor. But for concert-goers of Swedish DJ Avicii, the party scene turned ugly. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "All I know is a lot of people were getting drunk, because of course, alcohol was being served to people who had a license. And all I know is that some people were freaking out and needed to be restrained. It doesn't seem anybody got seriously hurt. That's all I know." (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "It was crazy, they dragged, like, four people out. I don't know. I think it was drunk. It might be Molly. I don't know. You never know with these people. They're crazy." This comes just days after two people died at a Las Vegas music festival. Police are investigating the incident.
