“No one should die going to a concert,” attorney Richard Mithoff said in a statement to Fox 26 Houston.

Hilgert was a freshman at Memorial High School in Houston.

“The pain of our loss from our son John not making it home alive from an event such as this is intolerable,” Mr. Hilgert told Fox26. “He was a beautiful young man who simply wanted to enjoy his first concert event with friends, whom he treasured spending time with more than anything else.”

The family’s attorney is also representing a friend of Hilgert’s who was injured in the reported crowd surge but made it out.

The family is asking for changes to make concerts safer after 10 people died in a suspected crowd surge.
