Travis Scott Sued by Paralyzed Fan Who Fell From Concert Balcony

October 31, 2017

During Travis Scott’s show at New York City’s Terminal 5 back in April, fans jumped form the venue’s balcony throughout the show, including one who suffered significant injuries that left him paralyzed from the fall.

The fan alleges he was pushed off “by the surging crowd” and is reportedly hitting Travis with a lawsuit. 

The victim has to now rely on his family to survive in Duchess County, New York.

The victim said, “I fell and hit the floor. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up. Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage. They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around. Then they dropped me in front of the stage.”

Travis then gave the fan one of his expensive rings for his fearlessness before continuing the show.

His injuries include fractured vertebrae, a broken left wrist and fractured right ankle due to the fall. Even after multiple surgeries he will have to get around in a wheelchair the rest of his life after being paralyzed on his left side. 

Claiming the emotional toll has been brutal on him, his lawsuit also leaves blame on the venue and security guards in addition to Travis, as his concerts have “incited mayhem and chaos at prior events.”
