‘Looks like folks are coming out of the crowd complaining of difficulty breathing, crushing-type injuries,’ one official said over the police radio around 9.21pm, according to the audio. ‘Seems like the crowd is compressing on itself.’
And as things continued to escalate: ‘They have to stop the show because there’s people trampled… they’re not breathing.’
‘I’m at the medical tent,’ one officer radioed in around 9.30pm. ‘There’s a lot of people trampled, and they’re passed out at the front stage.’

‘that crowd is super thick, super dense. if you go in there, this could possibly turn into an officer rescue situation.’
