MIAMI (AP) - Officials say a University of Miami student has died after attending the Ultra Music Festival over the weekend.

Local media outlets report Miami police say 21-year-old Adam Levine died after being taken to a hospital on Friday.

Ray Martinez, Ultra's chief of security, says security guards noticed the student in distress around 11:30 p.m. and called paramedics.

Martinez says rescue crews responded and transported Levine to the hospital. Police have not yet released a cause of death.

Dr. Patricia A. Whitely, UM's Vice President for Student Affairs, released a statement Saturday, extending condolences to Levine's family and friends.

Ultra officials said the event drew more than 165,000 people from 87 countries over the weekend. They said they will be cooperating with police during the investigation.
