FOX 26’s Denise Middleton spoke with an ICU nurse who was in attendance during the Astroworld music festival and assisted first responders at the concert, where eight people died and several other members of the crowd were injured.
Last night, one of the first lawsuits reported over the deadly Astroworld Festival was filed against Scott, Drake, and Live Nation. The lawsuit accused both rappers and the entertainment company of inciting “a riot and violence.” Scott’s previous history of chaotic performances was listed in the suit while accusing the Canadian rapper of inciting “the crowd even though he knew of [Scott’s] prior conduct” and “continued to perform on stage while the crowd mayhem continued.”
More lawsuits have been filed against Travis Scott and Live Nation over the deadly crowd surge at Astroworld Festival in Houston.
TMZ obtained documents filed by Roberts Markland LLP for the seven lawsuits which they described as identical with the exception of the petitioner’s name. The lawsuits accuse the involved parties of being negligent in providing sufficient security or even laying down a plan that could’ve prevented “several stampedes and a crowd compression” which resulted in eight deaths and countless injuries. Additionally, the lawsuits say Scott and Live Nation didn’t give any warning to fans of the potential dangers and failed to bring an adequate amount of medical staff to care for injuries.
