NAPERVILLE, Ill. – The families of the two Naperville friends who died and protected others from the crowds at a Travis Scott concert in Houston, Texas, have filed unlawful death proceedings.
Jacob Jurinek and Franco Patino were best friends and graduates of Nequa Valley High School.
Both men were among the 10 people who died at the Astroworld festival as concertgoers hurried up to the stage.
The law firm Corboy and Demetrio filed the claims Monday in Harris County, Texas. The cases allege negligence on the part of Scott, promoter of Live Nation and several other groups involved in organizing the event.
“We have video of thousands of [people] screamed, ‘stop the show, stop the show’, and he did literally nothing, and it becomes very difficult for him to say that he has never heard it before, because he has heard it before at other shows, and in the same way has he ignored it in the past as he ignored it two weeks ago, ”said attorney Philip Corboy.
Nearly 200 lawsuits have reportedly been filed as a result of the Astroworld Music Festival tragedy.
