A University of Miami student has died after attending to the 2016 Ultra Music Festival. According to The Miami Herald, 21-year-old Adam Levine visited the Miami electronic music festival on Friday, March 18, and died later that day at a local hospital.

“While we don’t have many details, we know that our security personnel noticed that Adam was having difficulties and immediately called Miami Fire paramedics so medical assistance could occur,” the festival’s chief of security Ray Martinez explained to the paper in an email. “From what we have been told, paramedics initiated medical treatment and transported Adam to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Most unfortunately, Adam passed away at the hospital.” Martinez said the festival would be fully cooperating with officials to determine what caused Levine’s death.

In a tribute posted to Facebook, the University of Miami remembered Levine as “a hardworking, passionate leader who always dedicated himself completely to every project he was involved with.”

“In addition to his leadership,” the post continues, “we will always remember his warm, outgoing personality and his incredible ability to brighten anyone’s day.”
