The 14-year-old family John hilgert – who lost their life at Astroworld – are devastated by the loss of their son, and want to hold those responsible … have reportedly filed a complaint against Travis Scott, Live Nation and others.
The complaint, filed Wednesday in Houston, claims that Travis and the concert organizers failed to provide a safe environment for those in attendance. Among the security failures listed, according to people, a lack of personnel, barrier gestures and emergency medical personnel.
A statement from John’s father, Chris, reads: “The pain of our loss of our son John not coming home alive from an event like this is intolerable. He was a handsome young man who just wanted to enjoy his first gig with friends, that he cherished spending time with more than anything else. “
He continues, “If this lawsuit is preventing even a family from suffering the extreme pain and anguish we have endured, then it is the least we can do to honor John’s memory.”
The lawsuit, filed by the lawyer Richard mithoff, allegedly claimed $ 1 million in damages.
Of course, the Hilgert lawsuit is just one of dozens filed against Travis, Live Nation and others. As we have pointed out, one dossier asks for $ 2 billion in damages, another claim $ 750 million and represents hundreds of alleged victims, whether these injuries are mental or physical.
Hilgert was one of 10 killed on the show. The main questions investigators need to answer, what happened and who is to blame?
Sources close to Travis have been adamant he did not know the extent of what was going on in the crowd. There was also a clear cut in communication between the rescuers, after we had video obtained cops enjoying the show more than 25 minutes after the Houston fire chief allegedly called the concert a “mass event.”
Travis’ lawyer, Ed McPherson, tells us, “It was reported that the plan of operations designated that only the festival director and executive producers had the authority to shut down the show, neither of whom were part of Travis’ team. Also flies in the face of HPD’s previous actions when shutting down the power and sound of this festival even when the performance lasted more than 5 minutes in 2019. “
