LOUDER THAN LIFE. THAT’S WHEN SHE STARTED HAVING
TROUBLE BREATHING, BUT HER
MOTHER NEVER WOULD HAVE IMAGINED
THAT HER DAUGHTER WOULD NVER
MAKE IT HOME.>>I WAS CARRYING MY DAUGHTER
THROUGH THE CROWD WHILE GUNS N
ROSES WAS PLAYING. SHE WAS LEANING ON MY SHOULDER
AND THEN SHE PUT HER ARMS AROUND
EACH SIDE AND I WAS JUST RUNNING
AS FAST AS I COULD TO GET
THROUGH THE CROWD. I NEEDED TO GET OUT THE GATE. I NEEDED HELP. THAT’S ALL I WAS ASKING FOR WAS
HELP, AND NO ONE WOULD HELP US. CAROLYN: BRANDI MOORMAN SAYS
SHE NEVER GOT HER DAUGHTER,
15-YEAR-OLD TRINITY JACKSON, OUT
OF THE ’LOUDER THAN LIFE’
FESTIVAL GROUNDS.>>SHE DIED ON THE STREET IN MY
ARMS. WE NEVER DID. CAROLYN: MOORMAN SAYS TRINITY
HAD ASTHMA, BUT NEVER HAD AN
ISSUE LIKE THIS. SHE SAYS TRINITY WAS BROUGHT TO
THE MEDICAL TENT LESS THAN A
HALF AN HOUR BEFORE THE TEEN
DIED. WHEN MOORMAN GOT TO THE TENT,
SHE SAYS MEDICS WERE TREATING
>>SHE WAS STILL SCARED AND A
LITTLE WORRIED, BUT I THOUGHT
THE MACHINE WAS WORKING. I THOUGHT I COULD TRUST THEM AND
SHE WAS IN GOOD HANDS. CAROLYN: SHE SAYS THEY LEFT THE
TENT AFTER THE TREATMENT,
ALTHOUGH HER DAUGHTER WAS STILL
HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING. MOORMAN SAYS THEY WAVED DOWN AN
AMBULANCE, BUT WHEN THEY GOT TO
NORTON CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, IT
WAS TOO LATE TO BRING TRINITY
BACK.>>THE DOCTOR TOLD ME THERE’S
NOTHING THEY COULD DO. HER HEART HAD STOPPED 36 MINUTES
BEFORE SHE GOT THERE. CAROLYN: POLICE SAY AUTOPSY
RESULTS AREN’T BACK YET, LEAVING
MOORMAN WAITING FOR ANSWERS.>>IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE TO
ME. I NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE BURYING
MY OLDEST CHILD. A HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL GIRL. SHE HAD SUCH A BRIGHT FUTURE. CAROLYN: CAROLYN CALLAHAN,
