City of Houston Names All 8 Victims From Astroworld Festival Tragedy

The eight concertgoers, who ranged in ages from 14 to 27, died as part of the “mass casualty” incident when the estimated crowd of 50,000 people began to compress toward the front of the stage.

The city of Houston has officially revealed the names of all eight people who were killed at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival on Friday night.

Over the weekend, Mirza Baig, Rodolfo Pena, Madison Dubiski, Franco Patino, Jacob Jurinke, John Hilgert, Axel Acosta Avila and Brianna Rodriguez were honored during memorials and vigils outside of Houston’s NRG Park, the site of the festival. The eight concertgoers, who ranged in ages from 14 to 27, died as part of the “mass casualty” incident when the estimated crowd of 50,000 people began to compress toward the front of the stage and panic and chaos ensued as a result, also leaving 300 individuals injured.

Houston Fire Department Chief Samuel Peña confirmed the casualties during a press conference late Friday, calling it “a tragic night” for the city. The following day, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner hosted another press conference confirming there were eight fatalities. On Monday (Nov. 8), city officials released the names of each victim and asked its citizens and beyond to “join us in lifting their families in prayer.” “The City of Houston extends heartfelt condolences to the families affected by Friday’s #ASTROWORLDFest tragedy. These lives were taken far too soon,” read the message from the city of Houston’s official Twitter account.
