Were There Any Casualties?
The Houston police initially confirmed that eight concert attendees had died and even more were injured. During a press conference on November 11, attorney James Lassiter announced the death of a 22-year-old college student who was in the crowd, bringing the total number of casualties to nine.
On November 14, 9-year-old Ezra Blount died of injuries sustained during the festival, bringing the number of deaths to 10. Blount, who also became the youngest person to die from injuries at Astroworld, was placed in a medically induced coma after he was trampled on November 5. “The Blount family tonight is grieving the incomprehensible loss of their precious young son,” the family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, said in a statement. “This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, what should have been a joyful celebration.”Back to top
