Ezra Blount, 9-year-old Dies From Injuries After Astroworld Crowd Crush

Travis Scott’s recent concert in Houston created a massive buzz amongst fans, and, surprisingly, death rose to ten due to the enormous influx of crowds at the event.

Ezra Blount, a 9-year-old boy who was trampled at Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival earlier this month, died on Sunday of his injuries, his family told local media.

After spending days in intensive care, Blount died following the tragic influx of people to the rapper’s festival.

Last week, the boy’s family reported that Blount was at the Scotts concert in Houston with his father, who raised him on his shoulders to stand over the crowd during the festival. His father told the local media that they were “excited” about going on the show.

The boy was severely injured and was taken to the hospital after being separated from his father and put in a medically induced coma with severe damage to his internal organs, his family says.

Blount’s dad, Treston Blount, said this week that the family was dying after the festival, saying he wasn’t “willing to lose my boy.”

Houston mayor Sylvester Turner said he was sorry to hear about Blount’s death. The mayor pledged a full investigation into the circumstances of the event and promised to cooperate with all probes.

Investigators are still in the process of determining what caused the surge. Still, during past events fueling the crowd, Scott’s conduct has been examined and repeated calls for improved crowd control measures at significant events.
