Travis Scott’s name has made headlines lately for reasons he certainly wouldn’t have wanted. This is because Scott’s latest Astroworld concert ended in utter tragedy. It seems the tragedy has traumatized many people.
The first night of Scott’s Astroworld concert resulted in tragedy, which left 9 people dead after a stampede broke out. In addition to that, more than 300 people also suffered injuries.
Around 9 PM, people started surging toward the stage. People got crushed, which led to mass hysteria. On top of that, 11 people went into cardiac arrest and were rushed to the hospital.
According to Hollywood Life, San Antonio-based attorney Thomas J. Henry, who is representing the victims of the concert, revealed that more than 165 people are traumatized after the incident.
“The people I am representing are in age range from teenagers up to age 40. They have injuries ranging from heart attacks, to heart issues, to brain injuries, to spinal injuries, to broken bones, broken legs, eye injuries, internal organ injuries, bruising and bleeding.
There is just a whole calamity emotional, injuries that were suffered” as well. “Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies. They didn’t have a choice because there was nowhere to move. These people were trapped. The crushing effect was so heavy and so hard. They couldn’t breathe. They couldn’t get out.
The unbelievable emotional anxiety of being trapped and that much weight being on you, you can’t do anything. It is an extremely common story by people whose cases we have on file. These people had no choice than to step over these bodies . From an injury comes emotional anguish, pain and suffering. They are having nightmares from what happened. They are experiencing tremendous mental trauma. They are experiencing degrees of PTSD. There is an entire range of injuries – physical, mental and emotional.”
It was said that the damages for the concert are estimated to be in the billions. Several victims from the Astroworld concert also showed off their horrific injuries recently. Fans even tried to stop the concert when the riot started during the concert but to no avail. We hope such a horrific incident never happens again.
