Astroworld Victims Died of Asphyxiation


Last month ten people were killed and hundreds injured after a crowd surge during the opening night of rapper Travis Scott's Astroworld tour [click here if you missed that]. 

All ten fatalities were caused by asphyxiation...

The 10 people who lost their lives in a massive crowd surge at the Astroworld music festival in Houston died from compression asphyxia, officials announced Thursday.
Medical examiners with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Houston had to wait several weeks following the Nov. 5 concert by rap superstar Travis Scott for additional test results before making final determinations on cause and manner of the deaths.
The youngest victim was 9-year-old Ezra Blount. The others who died ranged in age from 14 to 27. Medical examiners said contributing factors in one man’s death were cocaine, methamphetamine and ethanol, a form of alcohol.

I wonder how Puffy was able to bounce back after his City College stampede? I don't see Travis walking away as easy. Not even with Crisis Kris in his corner.

Well Kim just passed the Baby Bar maybe she'll represent him...

Back then folks didn't lawyer up. He gave them free tickets to the next show.
Even though TS has to take on some responsibility for the careless way he controls the crowds, the crowd needs to take some responsivity also. This man was not giving out government cheese. Why are they acting like he's a god and rushing the stage like fools?

Travis deserves whatever he gets at this point because of his history of inciting the crowd to jump all over each other. Even after the event, I didn't see any real remorse from this arrogant fool, so I hope those families put a hurtin on Travis and Live Nations pockets!

You're wrong. People did lawyer up and sued Puff the promoter, Heavy D and the school. Puff testified against City College at one of the trials. They were all found equally responsible. At the time Puff wasn't well known outside of the NY metro area. He and Heavy were able to survive the tragedy because there was no social media. 😁
