The final day of New York City’s three-day Electric Zoo music festival, held  on Randall’s Island, was canceled after two concert-goers overdosed and died at  the event, the city announced in a statement on Sunday. At least four others remain in  critical condition at area hospitals. Though the official cause of death hasn’t  been released, it appears that the fatalities resulted from the use of MDMA — either in the form of Ecstasy pills or in its powder or crystal form known  as Molly, CNN reports.
