A 20-year-old woman who collapsed at an outdoor rave party last week has died, the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba said Tuesday.

The woman was found unconscious early Saturday morning in a wooded area near the Goral Junction and was hospitalized in critical condition.

Magen David Adom medics said at the time they found her without a pulse but managed to resuscitate her before taking her to the hospital.

The hospital said the woman suffered irreversible brain damage due to heatstroke.

Doctors added that no alcohol or drugs were found in her system.

Police arrested several organizers of the event and were investigating the incident.

“Officers arrived at the scene found a nature party that was then stopped. The incident is being investigated,” police said at the time.

Nature party is sometimes a euphemism for drug raves.
