ROCHESTER, NY –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump has been retained by the family of Aisha Haskins-Stephens, a 35-year-old woman who died after being critically injured in a crowd stampede following a GloRilla concert.
Aisha’s death is the third from the March 5 concert, and seven other individuals were hospitalized. The cause of the stampede is still unknown and the venue has been shut down in the wake of the tragedy.
Attorney Crump issued the following statement:
“It is disturbing that after the deaths caused by a crowd stampede at the Astroworld Festival, more precautions have not been taken at concert venues. Aisha’s death was completely preventable and we are calling for transparency from Main Street Armory, GloRilla, and event staff as the investigation into how this tragedy transpired continues.
“Concert venues and organizers have a significant responsibility to ensure the safety and health of those in attendance – individuals who just want to enjoy music and have fun with their friends. It is imperative that we learn what happened and hold those responsible accountable.
“We will continue to pray for Aisha and her family as we seek justice in this tragedy – and do what we can to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.”
