As Ezra was still fighting for his life, his father, Treston Blount, confirmed in an interview that his son was a Travis Scott die hard fan from a young age.
Treston held Ezra on his shoulders as the countdown began to Scott’s performance. They stayed toward the back of the crowd because Treston said he thought it would be calmer.
“As soon as Travis Scott took the stage, people started pushing”, Treston said. He also confirmed having lost consciousness while his son, Ezra fell onto the ground.
As a result, Ezra was trampled. After regaining consciousness, he couldn’t notice his son anywhere. He hurried to on-site medic tents and also as many hospitals to try and locate his son.
Treston went on to fill out a missing person report before receiving a message from a politician that enclosed an image of Ezra.
