The footage on social media demonstrates that an American rapper Travis Scott kept performing at the Astroworld festival while dozens of people were hit in a stampede on November 6.

One video shows Travis pausing his performance as an ambulance attempted to reach the casualties. But despite that Travis started over to perform after he spoke briefly with two men on stages.   

“Two hands to the sky! Y’all know what you came here to do! I want to make this motherf*cking ground shake, goddamn it!” Travis said in the microphone.

Another video shows a man in the white t-shirts who climbed the camera’s platform and yelled: “People are f*cking dying! We’re trying to save somebody’s life! That’s somebody’s kid!”

TMZ posted a horrifying video where the Houston security guards failed to hold the stretcher when an unconscious female victim slipped and landed  on her head.

Travis Scott apologized for the accident on his Instagram and claimed that he could imagine anything like this.

“I just want to send out prayers to the ones that were lost last night. We’re actually working right now to identify the families to assist them through this tough time. My fans really mean the world to me, and I always want to leave them with a positive experience,” a rapper said.

Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival which gathered over 50,000 people had an accident in which at least 8 people died and over 300 received injuries.

At one point in the concert the crowd started pushing towards the front stage and as panic grew the situation got even worse as the singer was forced to stop the concert after seeing the people suffering.
