“We had at least eight confirmed fatalities tonight. Eight confirmed fatalities and we had scores of individuals that were injured here at this event,” Chief Pena said. “We had an attendance of approximately 50,000 to the Travis Scott Astroworld Festival event.”

“What we do know is that at approximately 9 o’clock, 9:15, the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage and that caused some panic and it started causing some injuries,” he continued. “People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic.”

Chief Pena noted that 17 individuals were transported to hospitals. “12 of those patients were transported by Houston Fire Department ambulances, five were transported by Harris County emergency services, 11 of those that were transported were in cardiac arrest,” he said.
