9-Year-old Ezra Blount Trampled at Astroworld Becomes 10th Death!
Continue on for more details surrounding the passing of 9-year-old Ezra Blount who died from injuries sustained at the Astroworld Festival…
CelebnMusic247.com reports Ezra Blount passed away Sunday at Texas Children’s Hospital, after being on life support since Friday, November 5.
Ezra Blount was among the hundreds who were injured during Travis Scott’s headlining show.
The family’s attorney, Ben Crump, says:
The Blount family tonight is grieving the incomprehensible loss of their precious young son. This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, what should have been a joyful celebration. Ezra’s death is absolutely heartbreaking. We are committed to seeking answers and justice for the Blount family. But tonight we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer.
The kid was in attendance with his father, who’s reported to have lifted his son up onto his shoulders once the crowd surge became unbearable.
Unfortunately, Ezra’s father passed out during the ordeal … leaving young Ezra to fall to the ground during the chaos … and be subjected to being crushed on by the panicked crowd around them.
He sustained serious bodily harm — ones that left him with severe swelling of the brain and internal bleeding … and since then, his family has been hoping he’d be able to recover.
