A 24-year-old man died of hyperthermia early Sunday.

A second person has died at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.

Coffee County Sheriff Stephen M. Graves said on Monday that 24-year-old Christopher William Yoder of Raleigh, N.C. died of hyperthermia early Sunday after being airlifted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, the Associated Press reports.

"The safety of our patrons is our No. 1 concern, and we are deeply saddened by this," Bonnaroo organizers said in a statement.

Late last week, a 32-year-old woman was found dead inside a tent. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death.
