Man dies after falling ill at Manchester's Warehouse Project

A young man has died after attending an event at Manchester’s The Warehouse Project.

The attendee, who was reportedly in his 20s, was taken to hospital after falling ill on early Saturday (9th April) morning, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The 'MK- Return to Manchester' event saw DJ MK performing at the Mayfield Depot on Friday night (8th April).

On Sunday (10th April,) Greater Manchester Police confirmed in a statement that the young man had died.

"Officers were called to a report of a death of a male at a hospital this morning. A male in his 20s was taken ill at Warehouse Project in the city centre in the early hours on Saturday (9 April) and taken to hospital where he sadly died on Sunday afternoon," they wrote.

While neither the man's identity nor the cause of death have yet to be confirmed, authorities are not treating the death as suspicious. 

“We have been made aware that in the early hours of Saturday morning, a young male in his mid-twenties was presented by WHP security to the on-site medical team during their event at Depot Mayfield,” a spokesperson for The Warehouse Project said.

They continued: “Having assessed his condition an ambulance was called and he was sent to hospital. We have however sadly learnt that he has since passed away. At this stage, we do not know any further details or cause of death. Our thoughts are very much with his family and friends.”
