The Houston Chronicle reports that the parents of a man who died while saving his fiancée’s life at Astroworld Festival 2021 had slammed Travis Scott and Live Nation with a massive lawsuit.
According to the outlet, the family is represented by a Dallas law firm that filed the suit alleging that Mirza Danish Baig, 27, died in a tragedy that was both “forseeable and brazenly courted.”
They added that defendants “placed more value on their own financial gain than on the safety of the concertgoers whose money was used to line the Defendants’ pockets.”
Also, Baig’s fiancée, Olivia, and his brother Basil, were injured in the tragedy, which reportedly killed 10 people.
Baig “sacrificed his life trying to save Olivia from the mayhem of an over-stimulated, unregulated crush of at least 50,000 people,” according to his family’s attorney, Chris Simmons.
“Olivia and Basil are trying to heal from their physical wounds,” Simmons said. “But the Baig family and Olivia will never fully recover from the pain of knowing that he suffered such a horrific and preventable death.”
Travis Scott has yet to address this as at press time.
