9-year-old boy dies, becoming 10th victim of Travis Scott's Astroworld festival crush



Ezra Blount, a 9-year-old boy from Dallas who suffered brain trauma in the crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival in Houston last week, has died.



He was put into a medically induced coma in an attempt to save his life after he suffered brain, kidney, and liver trauma as a result of what some witnesses described as a "crush" of music fans at the November 5 event, which has now claimed 10 lives.



Ezra was on the shoulders of his father, Treston Blount, when the crowd began to crush together and Blount passed out, causing his son to fall.



His parents secured the services of high-profile lawyer Benjamin Crump, as well as Alex Hilliard, Bob Hilliard, and Paul Grinke, to represent them in a lawsuit alleging that organizers failed at crowd control during the planned two-day concert organized by hip-hop star Travis Scott.Latest Post
