    More chaos has unfolded at the Burning Man festival as revellers clashed
    during the exodus from the Nevada desert.

    Attendees finally began leaving the city at Black Rock City on Monday
    afternoon after severe flooding and muddy conditions left thousands
    stranded over the weekend.

    During the mass exodus, Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen said that
    attendees “lashed out” at each other as they waited in long queues to
    leave the desert.

    “As usually happens in what Burners refer to as the ‘default world’ people allow their emotions to override their reasonableness and they are lashing
    out at each other as they leave the playa,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle.

    The wait time to leave the playa is estimated to 3.5 hours, according to a social media account associated with the festival.

    Meanwhile, the man who died during the festival was identified as 32-year-
    old Leon Reece. The exact cause and manner of Reece’s death are still
    pending but the Washoe County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a
    statement on Tuesday that drug intoxication was suspected.

    The officials also debunked a conspiracy theory that the festival was hit
    with an Ebola outbreak.
