Luke Combs Covers the Funeral Costs For the Lives Lost at Faster Horses
This past weekend one of Michigan's biggest music festivals, Faster Horses, was held in Brooklyn at Michigan International Speedway.
Tragically, several individuals lost their lives while attending the country music festival. According to the authorities, five men in their early twenties were found unresponsive in their camper Saturday (July 17) afternoon.
Upon arrival, medics began CPR; however, three of the men were pronounced dead at the scene. The other two men were taken to the hospital to be treated for carbon monoxide poisoning. Investigators believe a generator near the camper was the cause.
In times like these, it's important for the community to come together and show one another love and support. One of our favorite country artists led by example.
