Travis Scott Fan Critically Injured After Jumping From The Balcony; Cops Investigating
(AllHipHop News) A Travis Scott fan was hospitalized after falling from a balcony at the rapper’s New York City concert last night (May 1).
The hip-hop star was performing at Terminal 5 nightclub when he encouraged a different fan to jump off the first floor balcony, assuring him that the crowd below would catch him.
Video footage posted on Twitter showed Travis telling the fan, “They gon’ (sic) catch you, don’t be scared” before he jumped and was caught by the crowd.
Another gig goer wasn’t so lucky, and was severely injured falling from a higher balcony, with another video posted on Twitter showing the injured fan being carried out of the concert.
A spokesperson for the rapper told Pitchfork.com the injured party was taken to hospital and the incident is now being investigated.
“The safety of everyone is held in the highest regard and we are currently conducting an internal investigation to ensure that this does not happen again,” a statement from Travis’ representative reads. “We are deeply concerned about the guest who was injured and intend to offer him our support.”
According to the representative, Travis’ team are in contact with the fan in question and will be updated on his condition. Meanwhile, the investigation is apparently set to look into whether the concert goer jumped or was pushed off the balcony.
