All ten victims’ 死亡原因 was listed as “压缩性窒息,” according to documents from the office obtained by Fox News Digital. One victim had a contributing cause of “combined toxic effects of cocaine, methamphetamine, and ethanol.”
All deaths were ruled accidental.
The ten victims lost their lives during a reported crowd surge at the Nov. 5 music festival.
The news about the victims’ cause of death comes after Scott did his first sit-down interview regarding the tragic event that occurred at NRG park in Houston last month. The rapper emphasized that he did not know the severity of the crowd surge while he was performing.
“I didn’t know the exact details until minutes before the press conference [after my set],” the rapper alleged. “And even at that moment, you’re like, ‘Wait, 什么?’”
“People pass out, things happen at concerts, but something like that…’” Scott shared.
Scott also denied ignoring calls for help from the audience while he was performing.
“It’s so crazy because I’m that artist too — anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show,” 他解释. “You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, 我做了. I stopped it a couple of times to just make sure everybody was OK. And I really just go off the fans’ energy as a collective — call and response. I just didn’t hear that.”
Scott and other parties involved in the music festival have been hit with multiple 诉讼 following the 10 deaths and other injuries.
As the stage finally comes down, 40 days after the tragic incident, Scott is working towards a way to establish guidelines at concerts that would prevent another tragedy.
A source confirmed to Fox News Digital that the rapper is working with the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) to put together a team to find vulnerabilities and subsequent solutions to how concerts are held across the country.
