  • The surge broke out just after 9 p.m. Friday while rapper Travis Scott was performing, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters at a news conference.

Around 9:15 pm local time “the crowd began to compress toward the front of the stage,” Fire Chief Samuel Peña said at a news conference early Saturday.

“That caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries, people began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic,” the fire chief said.
