Astroworld Tragedy Continues a Week Later

Ezra Blount, a 9-year-old boy, was trampled during the crowd surge at the Astroworld festival last weekend and had to be put into a medically induced coma due to server brain, liver, and kidney trauma. Unfortunately, Ezra didn’t make it and became the 10th person who lost a life due to the evet.

His family has filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott and other concert organizers.

“This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, a joyful celebration. Ezra's death is absolutely heartbreaking. We are committed to seeking answers and justice for the Blount family. But tonight we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer,” said the family’s attorney, Ben Crump, in a statement.

Travis Scott has stated that he will pay the funeral costs of the victims.
