Travis Scott and Drake Sued Over Deadly US Festival Crush
US rapper, Travis Scott is facing legal action after at least eight people were killed and hundreds injured in a crush at his Texas festival Astroworld.
One injured concertgoer, Kristian Paredes has accused Scott and surprise performer Drake of inciting the crowd, and is seeking $1m in damages.
Neither have commented on the lawsuit.
In a statement following the crush, Scott said he was working to help the families of the victims – the youngest of whom was just 14. The surge began at about 9:15pm local time on Friday when panic broke out as the crowd pressed towards the front of the stage during Scott’s headline set.
Police in the Texas city have launched an investigation, including looking into separate reports that somebody in the audience was injecting people with drugs.
Several concertgoers had to be revived with anti-drug overdose medicine, including a security officer who police said appeared to have an injection mark in his neck.
