At least eight people died and hundreds were injured in a crushing accident at a concert venue hosted by world-famous hip-hop star Travis Scott in the United States on the 5th (local time).

According to foreign media, the local fire department announced that the accident occurred around 9:15 pm at the ‘Astro World Music Festival’ event held in Houston, Texas on the same day.

Excited by the heat of the concert, the audience suddenly began to flock to the stage.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said: “Some of the audience panicked and started to get injured. “The panic spread further as more people collapsed and lost consciousness,” he said. In the end, more than 300 people were treated at a clinic set up in haste at the event site, and 23 people were transferred to a nearby hospital.

Eleven of the patients who were taken to the hospital showed symptoms of a heart attack, raising concerns that the damage could increase.

At least eight people have been killed so far, Fire Chief Peña said.

There were about 50,000 spectators at the event at the time of the accident. The Astro World Music Festival was canceled due to an accident.

Previously, KPRC, a local broadcaster in Houston, reported that the Astro World Music Festival, which will be held for two days on the 5th and 6th, is showing signs of overheating, with hundreds of people breaking down security screening equipment during the day and rushing to the venue. Over two days, 100,000 people were expected to attend. The performance on the second day was canceled due to a crushing accident.
