Originally published on ZeroHedge

Update (1230ET): In a very strange turn of events, TMZ is reporting that the frenzy could have been a targeted attack:

A source connected to Astroworld tells TMZ, someone in the crowd went crazy and began injecting people with some sort of drug, which caused panic and then a surge.

The source says authorities are trying to determine if those who went into cardiac arrest were the ones injected. We’re told one of those who died is a 10-year-old.

The source says it appears to be a targeted attack.

We have not confirmed this report, but the source is a key person involved in the festival.

Footage from the event is disturbing…

And perhaps worst of all, some concert-goers climbed the stage and implored staff to “stop the show”…

…and they were ignored.

As Tom Ozimek detailed earlier for The Epoch Times, police officials said at least eight people were killed and many others injured in a crush when fans surged toward the stage at the Astroworld music festival in Houston on Nov. 5 while rapper Travis Scott was performing.

“This is a tragic night,” Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told a news conference outside NRG Park, the event venue.

“Eight confirmed fatalities, and we had scores of individuals that were injured,” he added, describing what occurred as a “mass casualty incident.”

Around 50,000 fans were in attendance at the festival, Peña said, when at around 9 p.m. “the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries.”

“People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic,” he said, adding that emergency response teams transported 17 people to area hospitals, with 11 of the victims in cardiac arrest.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said that some of those taken to hospital were as young as ten years old.

“Tonight’s focus … needs to be on the families and on the lives that we lost,” Hidalgo said. “Many of them extremely young, tragically young.”

Our hearts are broken. People go to these events looking for a good time, a chance to unwind, to make memories,” Hidalgo said. “It’s not the kind of event you go to to find out about fatalities.”

The fire chief said the cause of death of the 8 deceased will not be officially known until the medical examiner has completed an investigation.

Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite who was near the front of the crowd and told reporters at the press conference that the surge happened suddenly and played out over the course “of just a few minutes.”

“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, and that’s when I went and met with the promoters, and Live Nation, and they agreed to end early in the interest of public safety.”

The fire chief said that the event organizers had a “medical component” on hand to deal with emergencies, but “they were quickly overwhelmed when the crowd started falling out.”

Over 300 people were treated at an emergency field hospital set up at the venue, Peña said, with over 55 Houston Fire Department units later stepping in to provide assistance.

The show was canceled shortly after the incident, and the Houston Office of Emergency Management later announced that the Astroworld event had been canceled for Saturday.

“Please keep the eight victims and the hundreds injured in your thoughts and prayers,” the agency wrote in a tweet.

Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said “it’s very important that none of us speculate” about what caused the surge and to allow investigators to complete their work.

“Nobody has all the answers tonight,” he said. “We just don’t know. And we will find out. So, pray for these families.”

Its the propaganda version.

When people are not split up in sections with concrete walls or strong fences shit like this happens.

You didnt take the propaganda. Ill send sunshine and temperature, as You wish. OIf its more then 21 degrees I might send very good icecreme as well:)

But be carefull. After eating a lot and not just enjoy, You wont be hot anymore:)

Setting up barriers in the audience area isn’t common practice at concerts.

No joke bro.
Covid vax especially Pfizer is causing blood clots, hearth inflammation, and the list goes on.
Some people can tolerate a high level of abuse, think of heavy drug users, very damaging for the internal organs especially heart, liver, kidney, but others cant, they just die.
Same happened here, many people wont even notice a high heart rate or a minor chest pain, they will think oh it’s fine, Im having a good time but in fact they are slowly dying, the high level of stress, and loud music, pushed their body over the tip and they went into a cardiac arrest.
Thats what happened.
You better wake up…
If you took the Pfizer shots, it was nice to know you…
But I try to be a good Human being even with double digit suicidal humanoids, so here is a free tip that could save your life.
Take 2 Aspirins a day for a month.
Plus Omega 3 oil.
If you have any blood clots waiting to cause trouble it could clean it out your system.
You are welcome.

P.S. this will only help with blood clots, it won’t help in case of an autoimmune triggered cytokin storm.

Astra Zeneca is even worse – that is clotting, that leads to stroke, random killer. When a publicly known BBC newsreader dies from it, it’s pretty hard to cover up the truth.

My immediate thoughts as well.

I suspect that IF the V’s deadly or debilitating side effects are actually intended to cause harm that the planned harm has surfaced too early in the plan.

The winter of 2022 or beyond would make more sense, I think. By that time the Climate Stasi would also be in full swing.
