Travis Scott sends prayers after deadly Astroworld show
Rapper Travis Scott sent “prayers” to the families of eight people who died at his show during the Astroworld music festival Friday night, but denied that he had any idea what was happening below the stage until it was too late.
“Any time I can make out anything that’s going on, I’d stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know?” he said in an Instagram video Saturday night. “I could never imagine this situation.”
Eight people, ranging from 14 to 27, were killed Friday night in the out-of-control crowd and hundreds of others injured, police and government officials said Saturday.
