A 22 year old college student has died nearly one week after she was injured at the Astroworld Festival in Houston
This is the ninth person to die in the tragedy.
The 22-year-old, Bharti Shahani, was a college student at Texas A&M University.
“Bharti was a shining star in the community,” attorney Lassiter said.
“She was a sister, a daughter, a high-achieving college student about to graduate from Texas A&M University with high, high grades.”
Nine people, including two teenagers, were killed and scores more were injured during a crowd surge at the festival last Friday.
The exact cause of death for the other victims has not yet been determined.
The Houston Police Department and the FBI are investigating the incident. This process may take many more weeks or even months to complete.
Officials are currently reviewing video footage and interviewing victims and witnesses as part of the investigation.
“Investigations should start proceeding over finger-pointing so that together, we can identify exactly what transpired and how we can prevent anything like this from happening again,” attorney Edwin F. McPherson said in a statement.
Officials have not disclosed details about the fans who have been hospitalised since Friday.
According to AP, the family of a 9-year-old boy who attended the concert with his father has said the child was in a medically induced coma after sustaining injuries to his heart, lungs and brain.
How Disney beat Netflix at its own game
When it comes to streaming, there’s a new sheriff in town.
