The first responders were desperate to obtain Travis Scott fans are helping, even calling at the end of the show to help those in need of serious medical attention… and you can hear the emergency in their radio communications that night.
Several audio clips have surfaced online of Houston police officers and other medical staff addressing the issues of crowd crushing, passing fans, and even structural issues during Scott’s performance. Things are clearly dire, as one voice put it, “… people come out of the crowd complaining of difficulty breathing.”
During another radio transmission, rescuers can be heard saying: “… a lot of people stepped on and passed out on the front of the stage”.
While the audio doesn’t indicate exactly what time this all happened, one thing is for sure… authorities knew things were wrong. In fact, at one point they categorically say, “They have to stop the show because there are people being trampled and (inaudible) not breathing.”
Of course, the main question now – other than how 9 people died – is where communication was cut between emergency responders and the show’s organizers.
TMZ broke history, Houston police officers spotted take videos and photos with a cell phone by Travis and Duck as the rappers got the crowd excited.
According to the time stamps, the officers were seen calmly watching Travis play between 9:57 p.m. and 10:02 p.m.
The Houston Fire Chief said the event was declared “a large number of casualties” at 9:38 p.m.… so it is impossible to imagine that Travis would have been aware of the gravity of what was going on in the crowd if the police apparently did not. I do not know either.
