Ten days already since the drama of Astroworld Houston occurred, and yet the pain still remains alive. Over the next few days, this deep affliction will reach its peak. The families of the victims will have to bid their last farewells to their beloved loved ones who tragically left.
Eight families will bury their loved ones
As is customary to bury the deceased, relatives of the eight victims of the murderous Astroworld festival hosted by Travis Scott in Houston will follow the tradition. This has already started and three of the missing have already returned to their last home . This is Danish Baig, 27, who lost his life trying to save his fiancee during the mob movement. His brother had also publicly accused Travis Scott, his team and the promoters of the show of neglect.
23-year-old Rodolfo Peña who is one of the victims was also buried . The family of 16-year-old Brianna Rodriguez also said their last goodbyes to her recently. As a reminder, the age of the victims of the event is between 14 and 27 years old, all young people.
The other five victims who will soon be buried are: Axel Acosta Avila, 21, Madison Dubiski, 23, Franco Patiño, 21, Jacob Jurinke, 20 and John Hilgert, 14. The latter is one of the two minors killed and the youngest of the victims.
The speech of the American representative to Brianna
Brianna was a student at Heights High School and was passionate about dancing. During her funeral in Houston, the American representative Sheila Jackson Lee said a few words that allowed to know more about the young deceased. Apparently Brianna was showing remarkable leadership .
“ We don’t know what her career would have been like, her future, but her dancing just caught everyone’s attention ,” Ms. Jackson Lee said outside. “ It was natural, of course, but also you would have been touched by this warm and loving family .” She continues, “ You can see the true affection and the true leadership that Brianna has given .” Obviously, a promising star has died out too soon.
Astroworld, a tragedy whose damage is inestimable
After such a tragedy and the deaths of people, there is no doubt that the actors of the event will not come out unscathed. Indeed, hundreds of spectators have filed lawsuits against Scott and the festival organizers . In all, it is about fifty legal actions which are pending before the courts. The complainants argue that the deaths could have been prevented if adequate security measures had been taken.
A representative for Scott claimed he did not have the power to stop playing to help injured people in the crowd. It would also seem that a way out is emerging for the rapper, because according to his lawyer , the promoters of the show would be more to blame . Will Scott be able to get out of this mess without too much damage? Will he succeed in winning back the affection and support of his fans? We will certainly find out soon.
However, no matter how severe the sentence the judges hand down, it will never be enough to make up for the loss of these people to their loved ones.
