Ezra Blount: 9-Year-Old Becomes 10th Casualty of Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival

Published: Monday 15th Nov 2021 by Rashad

After days on life support, Ezra Blount – a 9-year-old who was injured at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival – has died, according to his family.

Details inside:

As we reported here, Scott’s Astroworld Festival – hosted in Houston on November 5 – erupted into a chaotic stampede that caused multiple deaths.

Ezra’s father, Treston, said he had the young boy on his shoulders at the onset of the chaos but fell to the ground and lost consciousness.  By the time he regained it, he couldn’t find his son – only to later discover the child had been transported to the hospital and put on life support due to major injuries sustained at the scene (i.e. swollen brain, organ damage, etc.).

According to Blount family, Ezra died Sunday (November 14). Ben Crump, the family attorney, released the following statement:

“The Blount family 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 we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer.”


The death toll is now 10.  While eight of those victims were pronounced dead Friday night (November 5), the ninth – Bharti Shahani – died Wednesday (November 10).

    Dont let travis scott host ANYTHING else. He doesn’t have the brains to run something like this. This is proof hype of an artist does not make them smart people. Rip to all the victims

      I think he tricked parents to think the circus-like decor was kid-appropriate.

      Look at the cover art for ASTROWORLD and you’ll have your answer.

        I thought it was kid friendly also. I ‘m not from Houston so didn’t know for sure. This is so sad.

    What a way to die, to be stomped to death to trap music.

    I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
