Some Cops at Astroworld Fest Pleaded on Radio to Stop Show to No Avail
Dramatic just-released police radio broadcasts from the Astroworld Festival reveal moments of chaos and confusion and the disaster unfolded. “There’s a lot of people trampled and they’re passed out at the front of the stage,” one officer said over their radio. “They have to stop the show because there’s people trampled and they’re not breathing!” another urged. But cops stationed in front of the stage appeared unaware that anything was wrong, even towards the end of Travis Scott’s performance.
