Two family members who worked as security guards at early November's Astroworld Festival are suing artist Travis Scott, their employer and several others over the injuries they suffered during a deadly crowd surge. 

Samuel and Jackson Bush were working for global security firm AJ Melino and Associates when a dramatic rush of people in the crowd lead to widespread panic and trampling as music blared on. In all, 10 people died and hundreds were injured during the now infamous concert. Samuel Bush suffered a broken hand and injured back, his nephew Jackson Bush suffered shoulder and back pain and emotional trauma from watching someone perform CPR, the suit explains. 

The duo filed the lawsuit Friday and lists a total of 33 defendants, including Travis Scott, AJ Melino and Associates, Live Nation and Scott's brand Cactus Jack. They blame Scott for continuing to perform even after the tragedy was well underway. The two plaintiffs also claim their employer left them unprepared to handle such a large crowd and failed to train security staff properly. 

The two are seeking $1 million from the collection of defendants. 

Their suit was one of almost two dozen lodged against Live Nation in Harris County on Friday alone. In the time between the Nov. 6 concert and Nov. 24, there have been at least 252 lawsuits filed against Live Nation in Harris County. 

Some of those include the family of two best friends from Chicago who died at the festival and a man who died after pulling his fiancée to safety.
