HOUSTON, Nov. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Tony Buzbee, the attorney in Houston representing the Acosta family, and more than 150 victims injured at the Astroworld concert, released internal Houston Fire Department logs today. The logs record, in real time, the events that occurred at Astroworld starting early in the morning before the gates were opened, until the scene was secured. According to Buzbee: “These logs demonstrate that as early as 10 am in the morning, security had lost control of the crowd. Things got progressively worse as the day progressed. The organizers, promoters, security, medical staff, and performers had ample opportunity—literally hours of notice—to cancel the concert before anyone was injured. This is criminal.” Buzbee indicated that he will file suit on Monday morning suit seeking more than $500 million for his clients.
