It’s no question that the events that took place at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival were tragic but now reports of staff being traumatized are coming in. Two security guards working the event, Samuel and Jackson Bush say they didn’t take this job expecting to witness the horror that unfolded. They’re claiming to have suffered mental and physical injuries while there. Jackson says he witnessed CPR performed on a lifeless body and pulled a person from the crowd crush that ended up dead. The lawsuit the brothers are filing is seeking $1 million in damages targeting Scott, Live Nation, AJ Melino, Cactus Jack Records and more.

Yahoo! Finance has reported that despite now billions in lawsuits filed against Scott have come in, the chances of him being held liable is slim to none. “The law requires him to engage in specific conduct that incited the incidents,” Bryan Sullivan of Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae told the outlet. “What did he do at Astroworld that night? That’s the question the courts will be asking.” Nick Rozansky, a lawyer at Brutzkus Gubner Rozansky Seror Weber, stated that responsibility would likely be relegated to Live Nation, Scoremore and the security company asked to work the event.

Scott’s attorney has stated that all of the parties capable of stopping the show to include Scott himself, did not work for Scott. attorney Ed McPherson maintains, “It was reported that the Operations Plan designated that only the festival director and executive producers have authority to stop the show, neither of which is part of Travis’s crew. This also runs afoul of HPD’s own previous actions when it shut down the power and sound at this very festival when the performance ran over 5 minutes back in 2019.” He adds, “Investigations should start proceeding over finger-pointing so that together, we can identify exactly what transpired and how we can prevent anything like this from happening again.”
