[VIDEO] Concertgoer Describes “Demonic” Scene, as People in Crowd Were Getting Killed While Travis Scott Kept Singing

A terrible nightmare unfolded at a music festival in Texas where rapper Travis Scott was performing. The festival’s name is “Astroworld.” It’s been held in Houston since 2018. Some of these video clips being shared online from the concert are so gruesome, I refuse to share them here. The bottom line is that many people were injured and killed after being trampled. It all started when hundreds of people stormed the VIP entrance. They busted through and even ended up tearing down the gates and security could not stop them. That was the first sign things were not going well.

As of now, they’re reporting 8 confirmed people have died, but possibly more. CNN says one of the dead is a 10-year-old child. Why on earth any parent brings a young kid like that to a concert festival is beyond me.

This was the scene outside of the festival.

The cardiac arrests were likely because of being trampled, according to experts.  Just terrible.

New York Post reported that at least eight people died and it injured scores more when chaos, including a crowd crush, broke out during opening night of rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival in Texas Friday, authorities said.

A mass of concertgoers at Houston’s NRG Park “began to compress” to the front of the stage at around 9:15 p.m., causing mayhem and some people to get hurt, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters early Saturday.

“People started to fall out, become unconscious and it created additional panic,” Peña said during a press conference.

At around 9:38 p.m. Peña said a “mass casualty incident” was triggered as the number of victims grew and emergency responders became overwhelmed.

At least 23 people were rushed to a hospital, including a 10-year-old, authorities said. Of those hospitalized, 11 were in cardiac arrest. Some 300 people were treated at a field hospital on the scene.

However, what’s emerging now, appears to be a story about concert staff, and production people, perhaps even Mr. Scott himself, who did not act responsibly enough as the death and chaos were happening in the crowd.

Watch as one young concertgoer who describes what he witnessed firsthand and how it has now changed his life.

This is another desperate concertgoer trying to get people’s attention and let them know people were actually being killed.

Watch:

And this young girl, who risked her own safety to get the concert folks to stop the show.

Reports show that Mr. Scott knew there were issues in the crowd; as he stopped several times during the concert and asked security to help people. However, to what extent he knew, is unclear. It’s not uncommon for people to get sick and dehydrated in situations like that and collapse.

I don’t think he’d have had a way to know what was really happening unless someone from his team told him.

However, it’s unbelievably macabre to watch the ghoulish videos of injured and dead bodies being dragged out, while his music is blasting in the background.

And from a PR standpoint that’s something that will probably stick with him and his brand for quite some time.

I believe the lawsuits will come fast and furious on this one. We’ll see if they hold anyone criminally liable for what went down.
