10 people lost their lives during the Astroworld Festival and now it has been confirmed what they died of …
Although he is receiving a lot of support from his family, Travis Scott will have a different Christmas after learning that it was confirmed that the cause of death of the 10 people who lost their lives at his Astroworld Festival was due to ‘compression asphyxiation’.
Forensic doctors published documents on December 16 confirming the causes of the deaths.
In all cases, the cause of death was determined as “compression asphyxia”, and one victim also had another cause of death listed as “combined toxic effects of cocaine, methamphetamine and ethanol”.
Compression asphyxia occurs when breathing is impeded due to external pressure on the body and is usually caused by the force compressing the chest and abdomen.
Following the tragedy, the families of several victims have taken legal action against Travis, as well as Live Nation, the company that organized the event.
Last month, 282 victims of the concert filed a $ 2 billion lawsuit against Scott, Drake, Live Nation, Apple Music and NRG Stadium, where the event took place.
While 125 other victims, including the family of Axel Acosta Ávila, 21, who died in the incident, filed a lawsuit for US $ 750 million for loss of mental and physical health and loss of human life.
There was also a lawsuit from two concert security guards, Jackson Bush and his uncle Samuel Bush, seeking $ 1 million after claiming that event organizers put “greed” before security.
And the family of the second youngest victim of the tragedy, 14-year-old John Hilgert, also filed their own lawsuit against Travis, organizers Live Nation and several others involved in the $ 1 million concert, citing “gross negligence.” and “reckless carelessness” for people’s safety.
