In a tragic turn of events, Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert turned into a nightmare. A stampede of fans surging toward the stage during rap star Scott’s Astroworld music festival in Houston killed at least eight people and injured dozens more as panic rippled through the crowd of largely young concertgoers on the 6th of November, 2021(Saturday).

The Police have opened a criminal investigation by homicide and narcotics detectives following unconfirmed reports that someone in the audience “was injecting other people with drugs.”

The disaster unfolded at NRG Park at around 9:30 p.m. on Friday during Scott’s performance. 25 people were taken to hospitals by ambulance after the chaos began, some of them in cardiac arrest, with 13 still hospitalized on Saturday. 8 people died. Most victims ranged in age from 14 to 27, though one victim’s age was not immediately known.

According to reports, as fans in the sold-out audience of about 50,000 pressed toward the stage, people began to fall unconscious, some apparently suffering cardiac arrest or other medical issues. Minutes later the chaos was declared a “mass casualty incident.”

Police were awaiting autopsies to determine the causes of death. Emergency vehicles, lights and alarms flashing, cut through the audience several times.
