A 9-year-old is in a coma after he fell off dad’s shoulders at Travis Scott concert
A nine- time-old boy is in a coma after he fell off his father’s shoulders and was tromped at the rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld musicale in Houston, Texas, last Friday, KTRK-TV reported. Ezra Blount’s father had put the boy on his shoulders to keep him out of the crowd, and the boy fell off when his father passed out, Blount’s forefather told KTRK-TV.
My son had Ezra on his shoulders at the musicale and my son could n’t breathe because of all the pressure that was being applied to him and he passed out,” the boy’s forefather told KTRK-TV. Blount is among the hundreds of people at the Astroworld Festival who were injured as a result of the crowd crush, which erupted when Scott came on stage. At least eight people, progressed between 14 and 27 times old, failed.
As of Monday night, Blount was in a medically- convinced coma after suffering severe damage to major organs, including his order, lungs, and heart, his forefather KTRK-TV.
Blount’s family is seeking responsibility and has since hired the attorney Ben Crump to represent them, the New York Post reported. Crump is a prominent civil- rights counsel who has represented the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor.
“ The suffering that this family is going through is bottomless. This little boy had his whole life ahead of him – a life that’s presently hanging in the balance because of the reckless mismanagement that replaced at the Astroworld Festival,” Crump said in a statement, according to the New York Post. We demand justice for EB, his family, and all of our guests that left Astroworld with trauma,” Crump said, using the boy’s initials.
