The Family Of A 9-Year-Old Who Is In A Coma From His Injuries At Astroworld Is Suing Travis Scott

A 9-year-old boy who attended the Astroworld Festival with his father is in a coma.

Ezra Blount was on his father’s shoulders Friday night when the crowd at the event surged and started pushing, his grandfather said.

That led to the father becoming crushed and passing out, at which point, Ezra fell to the ground.

The grandfather said the boy was taken to the hospital as a John Doe because he became separated from his father.

Injuries to his brain are so serious, doctors put him in a medically induced coma.

The family has hired attorney Ben Crump, who issued a statement accusing the Astroworld Festival’s management of being reckless.

Several lawsuits have been filed against the event after eight people died as a result of that crowd surge Friday night.

The family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount, who is in a coma after being “trampled nearly to death” at Astroworld Festival in Texas, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against rapper Travis Scott and organizer Live Nation over their alleged “grossly negligent conduct” at the deadly event.

Ezra and his father, Treston Blount, had traveled to Houston to see Scott, Ezra’s favorite rapper, his grandfather Bernon Blount told CNN. Treston recounted in a GoFundMe for Ezra’s medical bills that Ezra was sitting on his shoulders, and when they were being crushed in the swarm of people, Treston passed out.

Rapper Travis Scott organized the Astroworld Festival.
