On Friday, she had been at the festival along with her cousin and sister. They were all separated by crowd noise. 

After losing contact with her father, her parents searched various hospitals for her and eventually found her at Houston Methodist in critical condition. 

“She was like an Angel for us. She was our head. We were very happy to have her as our mother. She was always calm and listened to our needs. Her future looked bright.

The only thing I have for you is that you do justice. He said, “I don’t want someone else’s girl to be like this.”

Eight people perished, eleven suffered cardiac arrest, while hundreds of others were left with injuries from Friday’s celebration.  

Shahani’s mother, said that Shahani was asking for her first question. 

At first I replied, “No. No. No, no.” Because we don’t attend concerts. It’s not clear what the concert is about.

I know concerts can be fun and music. However, this was not a concert. It was not a concert. I’m not sure what it was. But this wasn’t a concert because my baby didn’t return.
