A nine-year-old boy who was injured in a crowd crush at Astroworld on November 6 has died, his family tells ABC13. Ezra Blount had been in a coma on life support after being trampled in a crowd crush during Travis Scott’s headlining set. He is now the 10th victim to lose their life at the Houston festival; eight deaths were reported the night of the event, with a ninth victim succumbing to their injuries on November 11.

Travis Scott, his label Cactus Jack, Live Nation, ScoreMore, and Drake—who made a surprise appearance during Scott’s set—were sued for their involvement in the tragedy immediately following the festival. Hundreds of attendees have since filed suit, including Blount‘s family. Scott has offered refunds on all tickets sold, and says he will cover the funeral costs for the families of those who died.
