“We were made aware of a 19-year-old woman taking unwell at an event in the Ingliston area of Edinburgh, around 18:00 on Saturday, 29 October,” a spokesperson said, per BBC News. “She was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for treatment but sadly died on Monday, 31 October.”
Terminal V is billed as Scotland’s largest electronic music festival. Prior to this year’s edition, police had raised concerns after previous Terminal V events led to a spate of hospitalizations from drug usage, per Edinburgh Live.
Nager was an activist who was said to have a passion for refugees and animals. A fundraiser has now been launched in her memory.
