The family of the 14-year-old boy who died at the Astroworld festival filed lawsuit against Travis Scott
Houston, TX – The number of lawsuits against Travis Scott is increasing for the Astroworld festival where several people died while hundreds suffered injuries.
As we already reported multiple times, there are dozens of lawsuits filed against the famous rapper from the families of the victims and the latest to join on the list are the parents of the 14-year-old John Hilgert who filed their lawsuit against Travis Scott on Wednesday.
According to the lawsuit, the parents of the victim are demanding changes in the way concerts are organized meaning stronger security, medical facilities available, and eliminating general admission “mosh” pits in lieu of assigned seats.
“No one should die going to a concert,” said attorney Richard Mithoff, hired by John’s parents, Chris and Nichole Hilgert.
The 14-year-old was one of 10 people who died at the festival organized by the famous rapper. The teenager was described as someone who had a passion for baseball and golfing with his father.
“The pain of our loss from our son John not making it home alive from an event such as this is intolerable,” Mr. Hilgert added. “He was a beautiful young man who simply wanted to enjoy his first concert event with friends, whom he treasured spending time with more than anything else.”
John was at the festival with a friend who was also trampled victim, but luckily, he escaped the danger and was grabbed to safety. The same attorney is representing John’s friend.
“He was lucky,” Mithoff said. “Someone found him and pushed him to safety.”
