The father of the nine-year-old boy who remains hospitalized after the reported crowd surge at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival is speaking out about his condition.
Treston Blount attended Astroworld with his son, Ezra Blount, who is a big fan of the rapper and Fortnite. The father, speaking to ABC13 in Houston on Friday, confirmed Ezra is currently on life support.
The article goes on to state the following:
Describing the moments that led to the surge, Treston said his son was “stoked” and “ready to go” see Scott, 30.
In the interview with ABC13 in Houston, Treston explained that since he knew it could “get a little wild” at the front of the concert, he had kept his son near the back of the crowd.
Treston had his son on his shoulders when the concert began, and said, “Everything was cool for a split second.” Then, the crush began.
“I’m yelling out, ‘I can’t breathe.’ There’s other people around me saying ‘I can’t breathe.’ It was definitely a moment where I didn’t know what else to do.”
The father collapsed and his son fell to the ground and was trampled. When Treston regained consciousness, he rushed to a medic tent and filed a police report. He was then given a photo of his son, and the father could see Ezra was hurt.
The 9-year-old is still in the hospital on life support, with brain swelling and damage to his organs. His family has filed a lawsuit against Scott and the festival organizers for “grossly negligent conduct.”
“I’m not ready to lose my boy at all. We still got a bunch of living to do,” the anguished father said.
