Bun B Weighs In On The Astroworld Tragedy!

Bun B Weighs In On The Astroworld Tragedy, estimated 50,000 people were in attendance at the sold-out event at Houston’s NRG Park. Witnesses described a massive wave of people surging toward the event’s main stage as Travis Scott began to perform, knocking people down and stepping on those who fell to the ground in the chaos. A number of witnesses said they sought help from police, security guards or others working at the festival as things started to turn more dangerous, but those pleas were met with apathy.
“Everything was normal up until when Travis posted the time he was going to get onstage,” Donovon Davis, 22, of Houston, told Rolling Stone. “That’s when it just got wild.” Following the incident, accounts and video flooded onto social media about what people experienced during the stampede-like atmosphere, as well as the futile attempts to stop the concert in order to allow the injured people — trapped within the churning mass — to receive the help they required.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said on Saturday that 528 police officers were working at the festival and 755 private security officers provided by Astroworld organizers Live Nation were also in attendance.
Madeline Eskins, an attendee and an ICU nurse, told Rolling Stone on Saturday morning, “It was definitely overcrowded. It was insane, honestly. I knew it was just way too crowded – it just got worse and worse as I got closer to Travis Scott performing it got more crowded, more crowded, more crowded.”
“Fans were recording the concert and people doing CPR,” Eskins added. “Fans were yelling at the stage crew around us, saying stop the concert, people are dying. No one listened.”
Eskins, attending her third Astroworld fest, told Rolling Stone that, in the initial crowd surge at around 9 p.m., “I looked at my boyfriend and I was about to tell my boyfriend to tell my son I loved him because I did not think I would make it out of there. And I fainted,” Eskins said. “I tried to jump up as much as I could to get air. I couldn’t breathe. I just felt it. I knew it was coming.”
Someone then crowd-surfed Eskins to a security guard while she was still unconscious; she came to in what she believed to be a VIP area that was filling up with unconscious festival-goers.
Eskins shared more of her experience on social media, saying she believed the medical staff at the show was inexperienced and overwhelmed: #astroworld #travisscott #bunb
