Bharti Shahani, 22 years old, has passed away. This makes her the 9th victim of Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival.
According to a family lawyer, Shahani, a senior at Texas A&M University, died Thursday from injuries sustained during Friday's Houston event.
We reported that Shahani was previously declared brain dead and was currently on a ventilator. After going to Astroworld with her cousin and sister, she was separated by a crowd surge. After the crowd surge, Bharti reportedly had several heart attacks and was taken to a local hospital.

A rep for Bharti's relatives confirmed Thursday that she was the woman in a video obtained by TMZ. The video shows her being thrown on her head by first responders. Reps for Bharti's family want justice...and for those who put safety above all else to be held responsible.
Bharti is the latest victim of the tragedy. It's possible that there could be more. Ezra Blount, 9, is still in hospital and fighting for his health. With the assistance of Ben Crump, a civil rights lawyer, his family sued Travis and Live Nation over injuries that they claim were caused by Ezra being trampled.
Travis has pledged to pay the funeral expenses of show victims and provide mental health services for those who were affected by the events.
Travis' representative tells us that Travis Scott and his team are actively seeking out ways to connect with all families affected by the tragedy via the appropriate liaisons. He is deeply affected by the situation. He wants to offer his condolences to all families and to provide assistance as quickly as possible. However, he also wants to respect each family's wishes about how they would like to be connected.
