Astroworld: nine-year-old boy dies, becoming 10th victim of music festival crush

The Guardian says a nine-year-old Dallas boy has become the youngest person to die from injuries sustained during a crowd surge at the Astroworld music festival in Houston.

Ezra Blount of Dallas died on Sunday at Texas children’s hospital in Houston, family attorney Ben Crump said.

Ezra was placed in a medically induced coma after suffering serious injuries in the crush of fans during a performance by the festival’s headliner, rapper Travis Scott, on 5 November. He is the 10th person who attended the festival to die.

Treston Blount, Ezra’s father, described what happened in a post on a GoFundMe page he set up to help defray Ezra’s medical expenses. He said Ezra was sitting on his shoulders when a crowd surge crushed them. The father lost consciousness and when he came to, Ezra was missing, Blount said. A frantic search ensued until Ezra was eventually found at the hospital, severely injured.
