HOUSTON – Funeral details have been released for Ezra Blount, the 9-year-old who died after he was trampled at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival.
Blount’s funeral will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 23 at Inspiring Body of Christ Church in Dallas, Texas, at 11 a.m.
Attendees are required to wear a mask.
Ezra was in the hospital fighting for his life after being trampled in the crowd surge at the festival on Nov. 5. He was placed on a ventilator before being pronounced brain dead earlier this week.
Crump sent the following statement to KPRC 2 Sunday night:
“The Blount family tonight is grieving the ultimate, incomprehensible loss of their precious son. This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, a joyful celebration. Ezra’s death is absolutely heartbreaking. We are committed to seeking answers and justice for the Blount family. But, tonight, we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer.”
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner also offered condolences to Ezra’s family via Twitter Sunday night.
His passing now brings the death toll to 10.
Ezra was transported to a hospital after he and his father were trapped in the crowd surge at Astroworld Festival. His grandfather said both of them were trampled.
As a result, Ezra suffered multiple injuries to his liver and lungs, and had swelling of the brain, according to his family.
Ezra’s family created a GoFundMe to help with future expenses.
