His grandfather told CNN, "When my son went to the concert, he had my grandson on his shoulder. All the people pushed in and he could not breathe so he ended up passing out because of all the pressure that was being applied to his body. And when he passed out, Ezra fell off his shoulder and fell into the crowd."

Ezra's family is placing the blame solely on Scott and Live Nation. They believe they failed to have proper security measures in place to prevent the fans from being hurt. Crump says he believes the venue should have had additional security and emergency personnel.

As Radar previously reported, Scott has been hit with 20+ lawsuits accusing his negligence of playing a role in his fan's severe injuries and the 8 who died.
