Ezra Blount, 9 years old, has died, making him the youngest victim of Travis Scott’s Astroworld.


Ezra Blount, nine years old, died as a result of injuries incurred at Travis Scott’s Astroworld.

Treston Blount, the father who accompanied his nine-year-old son to the Astroworld Music Festival, where almost a dozen people killed in a tragic crowd surge, broke his silence while his son was fighting for his life in the hospital.

Ezra Blount, 9, died on Sunday after being placed in a medically induced coma in the hospital. His family is one of hundreds who have filed lawsuits against rapper Travis Scott, Live Nation, and others.

Treston told ABC 13 Houston that he and his son were on a bonding trip when they went to the show.

He was stoked. He was ready to go,” Blount said. “When I found out that he was a big fan [of Travis Scott], I was like, “Oh yeah, we gotta go, we gotta go see Travis live.

Despite the fact that he and his son were not among the crowd near the stage, they were harmed, according to the father. The two were in the back of the crowd, where they felt safer because most attendees were crammed towards the stage at the front.

Treston claimed that he passed out due to the crowd’s pressure while Ezra was on his shoulders. As many scrambled to escape out of the crowd, the young child slipped and was trampled by those surrounding him.

Era and his Father

According to Treston, the youngster was brought to the hospital because his vital organs had been harmed and he had brain edema. He was admitted to the hospital as John Doe. Trenton stated that he could see his small son had incurred major injury, and he becomes upset as he expresses his desire not to lose his son.

I’m not ready to lose my boy at all. We still got a bunch of living to do,” Treston said.

Ezra’s case, filed last Tuesday by Attorney Ben Crump, claims that Travis Scott and Live Nation’s “grossly negligent behavior” caused to the child’s life-threatening injuries. The case will now be amended to reflect his death, which might impact the verdict and how much Travis Scott and the promoters must pay.

According to personal injury attorneys Ben Crump and Alex and Bob Hilliard representing the family, Blount’s lawsuit alleges that the defendants Scott and others were irresponsible.

Meanwhile, Scott, in a statement on Thursday, said that he was

“Actively exploring routes of connection with each and every family affected by the tragedy through the appropriate liaisons.”

Ezra Bount is the tenth and youngest person to die as a result of the catastrophic Astroworld Festival.
