      It didn't take long for lawyers to spring into action following a tragedy in Houston.

      On November 5, fans rushed toward the stage at the Astroworld Festival after Drake made a surprise appearance at a Travis Scott concert.

      Eight people were killed and hundreds were injured.

      One of those injured, Kristian Paredes, has filed a lawsuit against Scott and Drake, allegedly for "inciting the crowd". Other defendants include Live Nation and the site where the concert was held.

      This allegation has not been proven in court.

      Another lawsuit on behalf of an injured man named Manuel Souza has been filed against Scott and Live Nation, among others.

      Scott founded Astroworld in 2018.

      He issued a statement on social media saying he's "absolutely devastated by what took place" at his show.

      Witnesses, including the man in the tweet below, have vividly described the horror of what happened at the concert, with medics going from body to body to determine who was alive.
