On 10th August, George wasn't feeling 100 percent, nothing he felt concerned about just not fully well, he did not have an appetite. When arriving at the music festival later that afternoon he started feeling sick and shakey. He returned to his tent where he vomited all night. In the night he began getting cramps in his legs.
On 11th August George woke up, continuing to be sick, with severe pain in his legs, particularly his left leg. He was unable to bare weight on his leg and he had cramps. George was taken to the Festival’s medical tent. On his left foot George had a ‘red mottled, bruised, non-raised rash that looked like a tribal sign’.
Tests were done and it was concluded that George might have a stress fracture on his ankle, and was suffering from dehydration. George’s heart rate was high between 80- 100 bpm, and he had been vomiting all night and continued to vomit whilst in the medical tent. His blood pressure was low. He was administered morphine when his observations improved slightly but he was still unable to walk without assistance.
