On Friday night, these tragic events occurred at Scott’s concert.
The event, which was organized by Scott and Live Nation, quickly devolved into a terrifying scene as crowds swelled, causing trampling and other injuries.
According to KHOU, Houston Fire Chief Sam Pea said of the incident, “This is a tragic night.”
Tonight, we know there were at least 8 confirmed fatalities.
People began to fall out and become unconscious as the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage…causing some injuries.”
Scott, who has been chastised for not stopping the concert in the midst of the chaos, has issued a statement.
“I’m completely devastated by what happened last night,” he wrote on social media on Saturday.
My thoughts and prayers are with the families and all those who have been affected by the events at the Astroworld Festival.
The Houston Police Department has my full support as they investigate the tragic loss of life.
I am committed to collaborating with the Houston community to help families in need heal and be supported.
