Footage Reveals Moment Travis Scott Notices Ambulance In Crowd At Astroworld Gig Where Eight Died
| Last updated
Footage has revealed the moment Travis Scott noticed an ambulance at his Astroworld concert. Watch below:
Last Friday (5 November), eight people died and many others were injured in a crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival during Scott's performance in Houston, Texas.
At one point during the concert, Scott acknowledges an ambulance arrive and he looks to be concerned about the situation.
On stage, the 30-year-old says: "There's an ambulance [unknown speech]."
After looking bemused for 30 seconds, he has a chat with his people.
We don't know what was said, but afterwards Scott carried on with the gig, asking the audience to put their 'middle fingers up to the sky'.
"I wanna make this motherf***ing ground shake god dammit," he shouts down the mic as the festival continues.
During Scott's performance, a compression of the crowd toward the stage occurred just after 9pm local time on Friday (5 November), Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena told reporters at a news conference.
"The crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries," the fire chief explained.
"People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic."
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."
The show was called off after several people began suffering injuries, and the second and final day of the festival was cancelled.
Officials transported 23 people to the hospital, including 11 who were in cardiac arrest, Pena said.
Around 300 people were treated for injuries such as cuts and bruises at the scene at NRG Park, where a field hospital had been set up.
Approximately 50,000 people were in attendance at the festival, Pena said.
Travis Scott will pay for the funeral costs of everyone who lost their lives.
