Astroworld festivalgoer recalls being surrounded by 'lifeless bodies and sinkholes of people' at 'demonic' concert
A WOMAN claiming to be an attendee at Friday night's deadly Astroworld Festival has described the event as "hell," saying she was surrounded by "so many lifeless bodies" and "sinkholes of people" in the crowd.
Brooke Elliott posted her experiences on TikTok, describing what she allegedly saw at the Houston festival, where eight people were killed during a crowd surge.
Mass casualties were reported following the surge, which took place during rapper Travis Scott's performance.
Scott his known for the electric energy at his shows, and since Friday stories have resurfaced of injuries at previous Scott gigs.
On Saturday, Elliott posted a video to TikTok, saying: "I've never experienced anything like that in my entire life. Probably because I've never been surrounded by so many lifeless bodies.
'WE WERE IN HELL'
"I haven't been able to stop thinking about what was happening all around me.
"It was so demonic. The energy was so demonic. The set was demonic. Travis was demonic. We were literally in hell – it felt like we were in hell."
She went on to describe how people needed to stand on tip toes to breathe and that there was "nothing that anybody could do."
"There's sinkholes of people in the crowds all around me," Elliot said. "If I would have hit the floor, I would never have gotten up."
The Sun reached out to Elliott for comment.
On Monday it emerged that Scott played for more than 30 minutes after his Astroworld festival was declared a mass casualty incident.
Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said the event was declared a "mass casualty" at 9:38pm.
'MASS CASUALTY' EVENT
The New York Times and The Houston Chronicle say Scott was still on stage at 10:15pm. Reuters report 10:10pm.
Scott had briefly stopped the show at 9:42pm, calling for help for a concertgoer who had passed out. He then resumed the show, Insider reports.
Victims of the tragedy include 21-year-old student Axel Acosta and schoolboy John Hilgert, who was just 14.
Student Franco Patiño, 21, Danish Baig, 27, Brianna Rodriguez, 16, Jacob Jurinek, Madison Dubiski, 23, and Rudy Peña, 23, are also among the victims.
Scott, Drake, and Astroworld festival organizers Live Nation are reportedly being sued for damages following the fatal tragedy in Texas on Friday.
