What We Know About the Fatal Travis Scott Concert
Roughly 50,000 people were in attendance Friday night as rapper Travis Scott took the stage. The scene soon become one of mayhem as the crowd surged towards the stage, entrapping, trampling, and crushing fellow concertgoers.
Nine people have died, 23 people were hospitalized, 11 suffered cardiac arrest, and over 300 people were treated at a “field hospital.”
Reports indicate the Houston Police of Chief met with Travis Scott prior to the concert, raising concerns about the crowd. A “mass casualty incident” was issued at Astrowold at 9:38; nonetheless, Travis Scott continued to perform until 10:15 p.m. even as police and an ambulance attempted to respond to injured attendees.
A criminal investigation is underway.
Travis Scott has been charged twice in the past for similar incidents at his shows. These include a 2015 incident in which Travis Scott pleaded guilty to reckless misconduct charges after urging a crowd at Lollapalooza to vault barricades and rush the stage and a 2017 incident in Arkansas where he was arrested for encouraging fans to again bypass security and rush the stage.
