“Out of respect for everyone impacted by the tragic events at the Astroworld Festival, we are postponing the launch of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack,” the message reads on the SNKRS app.
Yesterday, 9-year-old Ezra Blount became the latest casualty of the Astroworld Festival crowd surge. Blount was in a medically induced coma after the festival on Nov. 5. He died on Sunday, the USA Today reports. Blount had brain, liver, and kidney trauma.
Ezra’s father, Treston Blount, arrived “from out of town” to attend the concert and spend time with his son, Bernon Blount, Ezra’s grandmother confirmed.
“They were expecting to come and have a good time with each other, bond as father and son, and it turned into a tragic event because of the negligence of others,” Bernon Blount told the AP.
