Eight people were killed and several more injured in a stampede during a sold-out hip-hop music festival in Houston, Texas, the fire department said.

Ambulances and firefighters were called in after multiple injuries were reported on the opening night of the Astroworld Music Festival.

“We have eight confirmed fatalities at this point,” Houston Fire Chief Samuel Pena told reporters, adding that overall, 23 people were transported from the scene.

“The crowd began to compress toward the front of the stage, and people began to panic,” Pena said.

A video on social media shows paramedics performing CPR on several people who are lying on the ground outside the stage, as loud music continues to play in the background.
