The family of John Hilgert, 14, filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott on Wednesday after Hilgert was killed in an alleged mob wave at the Astroworld music festival.
In his lawsuit, the family are asking for changes to make concerts safer for fans, according to reports. Suggested changes include better security, more medical facilities and assigned seats.
“No one should die going to a concert,” attorney Richard Mithoff said in a statement to Fox 26 Houston.
Hilgert was in first grade at Memorial High School in Houston.

“The pain of the loss of our son John who did not come home alive after an event like this is intolerable,” Hilgert told Fox26. “He was a handsome young man who just wanted to enjoy his first gig with friends, who he loved spending time with more than anything else.”
The family lawyer is also representing a friend of Hilgert’s who was injured in the reported crowd surge but survived.

The rapper claims he didn’t know gravity of the situation.
