Footage Has Emerged Of Travis Scott Pausing Astroworld Performance After Fan 'Passed Out'
| Last updated
Footage has emerged of Travis Scott briefly stopping his performance at Astroworld after he noticed someone in the audience had 'passed out', calling out to security for help through the microphone.
According to Reuters, the show was stopped for a first time when Scott noticed an ambulance driving through the crowd.
He said: "There's an ambulance in the ... whoah whoah."
An aerial shot showed the top of what appeared to be an emergency services vehicle surrounded by concertgoers.
Scott continued with the performance moments later, telling the audience: "Two hands to the sky, I want to make this ... ground shake."
However, less than 15 minutes later, things ground to a halt once again after he saw that someone had fainted, calling out for security staff to help them.
Scott said through the microphone: "We need somebody to help, somebody passed out right here.
"[...] Don't touch him, don't touch him, everybody just back up. Security, somebody help, jump in real quick."
Security guards could then be seen trying to pull people from the crowd.
Reuters reports that the show continued 'moments later', with Scott again calling on the audience to make the 'earth quake'.
The concert - which was held at Houston's NRG Park stadium complex on Friday 5 November - was hit by tragedy when eight people died and scores more were injured during a large crowd surge.
In the wake of the incident, Scott released a statement on Twitter to say he felt 'devastated' by the events.
In the aftermath, a seemingly shook-up Scott wrote on Twitter: "I'm absolutely devastated by what took place last night.
"My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.
"Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into this tragic loss of life.
"I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support families in need.
"Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support."
