Casualties from Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert have reached nine following the death of a concert goer who had sustained injuries due to the stampede that shook the festival last weekend.
Bharti Shahani, 22, was rushed to the hospital following the tragedy that left eight dead and hundreds injured Friday night (Nov. 5) in Houston. Doctors had earlier declared the woman brain dead. She was put on a ventilator prior to her death on Thursday.
According to TMZ, Shahani had attended the festival with her sister and cousin. The trio got separated during the rush that reportedly led to a crowd crushing stampede while Travis was performing one of his songs on stage.
Her medical data revealed she suffered multiple heart attacks following the overwhelming crowd surge. She was transported to a local hospital for injury treatment. Sadly, she passed away.
The family’s attorney, while announcing the news of her death, said they want justice for the departed and her family, demanding that those responsible for the tragedy be held accountable.
