Astroworld concert-goers attempt frantic CPR: video

Dramatic video shows several people frantically performing life-saving efforts on victims in the middle of the crowd at Travis Scott’s deadly Astroworld concert Friday.

Footage posted online shows at least two people desperately performing CPR on fallen concertgoers at Houston’s NRG Park while Scott continues to perform in the background.

Several dozen people can be seen looking on in the middle of the 50,000-strong crowd at the doomed concert while efforts to resuscitate victims continue on the ground.

Houston police said eight people were reported dead in the mayhem, including a 14-year-old high-school freshman caught in the crush.

Police Executive Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite told reporters Saturday that his officers were at the scene and jumped in to perform CPR on several victims.

“Suddenly we had several people down on the ground experiencing some type of cardiac arrest or some type of medical episode,” Satterwhite said. “And so we immediately started doing CPR, and moving people right then.”
