Billy Naseer, 24, who had travelled from Indianapolis to be at the concert, said about 15 minutes into Scott’s performance, things went “really crazy” and people began crushing one another. He said he “was picking people up and trying to drag them out.”  Source – cbc.ca

Naseer stated he discovered a concertgoer on the ground. 

“I picked him up. People were stepping on him. People were like stomping, and I picked his head up and I looked at his eyes, and his eyes were just white, rolled back to the back of his head,” he said. 

Over the weekend, a makeshift shrine of flowers, votive candles, sympathy notes and T-shirts, including a Scott tee, took place outside NRG park. 

Michael Suarez, 26, came to the expanding memorial after being at the concert. 

“It’s very devastating. No one wants to see or hear people dying at a festival,” Suarez said. “We were here to have a good time — a great time — and it’s devastating to hear someone lost their lives.”
