Man dies after falling ill at Lollapalooza

A 39-year-old Illinois man died of natural causes at a Chicago hospital after falling ill at the Lollapalooza music festival, authorities say.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday that authorities said Jeffrey Grimm of Oak Park died after being rushed in critical condition from the music festival to a hospital Friday.

An autopsy revealed Grimm died of hemopericardium from an aortic dissection and cardiovascular disease. The autopsy finding meant Grimm suffered a tear in the wall of his aorta and endured blood entering a sac of his heart.
