Is the Media Lying About the Number of Deaths at the Astroworld Festival Tragedy? Could It Be Hundreds?


Earlier this morning, I reported on the shocking events that transpired at Friday night’s Travis Scott Astroworld Festival.

Official accounts list eight confirmed fatalities from the mass casualty event.

However, there are surfacing reports that claim the media is lying about the real number of fatalities.

Some accounts claim it’s closer to the hundreds.

I want to emphasize that these are NOT my claims.

As I noted in my last post, festival attendees had to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination to gain entry.

The media called the tragedy a “deadly concert stampede.”

But that doesn’t explain accounts of attendees suffering from cardiac arrest.

If the 8 confirmed deaths all resulted from a “stampede,” wouldn’t there by dozens of broken bones?

Media reports already admitted 300+ attendees received medical treatment at a field hospital.

Could they be hiding the real number of individuals who passed away of cardiac arrest?

Below are pictures & videos posted to social media from the tragedy.



Reports indicate medics were overwhelmed by the number incidents in the crowd:

From the New York Post:

Medical crews at Houston’s NRG park were poorly trained and ill-equipped to treat people at rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival, where at least eight people were killed and nearly two dozen injured in a stampede Friday night, concertgoers said.

Some 300 others were treated at a field hospital during the “mass casualty incident” at the scene after scores fell to the ground while Scott was performing, police said. At least 11 people were in cardiac arrest.

Madeline Eskins, who was at the concert and confirmed to the Post that she’s an ICU nurse in Humble, Texas, posted on Instagram that she initially passed out during the crush near the stage. She said her unconscious body was apparently “crowdsurfed” out of the packed crowd and when she woke up, “I had a water bottle in my lap and had no clue what happened.”

She looked around and saw that people were being carried out with their eyes rolled back, “bleeding from their nose and mouth” and ended up trying to help security check victims’ pulses. One had none.

A security guard asked her to help and she found no emergency equipment, such as Ambu bags used to resuscitate people who can’t breathe or defibrillators used to shock hearts.

“Some of these medical staff had little to no experience with CPR, didn’t know how to check a pulse, carotid or femoral,” Eskins wrote in her post. She said some people who had pulses were getting unneeded CPR, but there were not enough people to do CPR “on individuals that were actually pulseless.”

Authorities suggested the possibility of festival attendees getting injected with drugs.

cont. from the New York Post:

Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said authorities have “heard rumors of people injecting people with drugs” at the show, but added “I think it’s very important that none of us speculate.”

A source close to concert organizers told The Post they believe that is what happened, pointing to a spate of “spiking” incidents at UK bars and clubs as an example of the sort of attack, and suggesting that the people who collapsed were all in the same area of the crowd.

“This was a targeted attack on innocent people, including a child,” the source maintained. “People were being spiked against their own will. The crowd surge was from panic because people were running for safety.”

While the use of illicit drugs is plausible, this wouldn’t be the first time for a concert.

Festivals, concerts, and nightclubs remain notorious venues for dangerous substances amongst partygoers.

But has any “cardiac arrest” incident of this magnitude every occurred at a large-scale event?

Reports claim hundreds of young festival attendees received medical treatment for cardiac distress.

Is it possible that this tragedy was caused by cross-reactions of the COVID-19 jabs with illicit drugs?

Again, family members of those deceased should demand transparency from the medical examiners.
