Travis Scott‘s ‘Astroworld’ victims’ official cause of death has been revealed, claiming the massive crowd surge crushed their lungs — causing “compression asphyxia.”
According to the official coroner’s report, all ten victims of the terrible tragedy died due to being suffocated by the pressure from the surging crowd. All of the victim’s official cause of death is listed as “compression asphyxia.” As you know, many of them were rushed to local hospitals after collapsing inside the concert.

Interestingly, one of the ten victims had a “contributory cause” to his death. Illegal drugs were found in his system.
According to the records, the combined toxic effects of cocaine, methamphetamine, and alcohol were a secondary cause leading to the death.
In this case, autopsies were performed for each victim.
Travis maintains his innocence, and has not taken fault for the multiple deaths and overall tragedy.
Earlier this month, Travis broke his silence on the November 5 melee.
Travis tells his side of the story!
The interview came after a $10 billion lawsuit was filed, in addition to one seeking $2 billion, in damages.
“The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God took to his YouTube channel and uploaded an hour-long interview with the “Sicko Mode” rapper. There, Travis continued to emphasize that he had no idea what was going on in the crowd of over 50,000 people.
Tragedy struck while he was performing at the end of the night, and brought Drake out. Several fans in the crowd were seen begging for the concert to stop.
“It wasn’t really until minutes into the press conference that I found out exactly what happened,” Travis explains. “Even after the show, you’re just hearing things. But I didn’t know the exact details until minutes before the press conference. And even at the moment, you’re like, ‘Wait. What?’ You just went through something, and it’s like, ‘What?’”
Travis continued to emphasize that he didn’t know any attendees had died at his show until that press conference officially began.

He also added that he didn’t hear fans call for him to stop the concert to address the chaos that was occurring. This is all while Travis revealed that he stopped the concert that night a few times, to make sure that his fans were okay.
“The thing is, people pass out. Things happen at concerts. But something like that. It’s just like…it’s so crazy because I’m that artist, too, you know, anytime you hear something like that, you want to stop the show. You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need,” he explained. “Anytime I could see something like that, I did. I stopped it a couple times just to make sure everybody is OK. I really just go off the fans’ energy as a collective. Call and response. I just didn’t hear that. I’ve got music. I’ve got my in-ears. I just didn’t hear that.”
In the aftermath of the Astroworld Fest, many critics pointed blame at Travis, for how things usually go, at his concerts. This includes fans acting a bit more energetic as usual, and this is part of the “rage” culture, that he’s known for.
