A Travis Scott fan, who was left paralyzed after being pushed from the balcony at the rapper's New York City show in April, has filed a lawsuit against the Houston artist, New York Post reports.

Kyle Green, a resident of Brooklyn and a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology at the time of the April 30 concert, says he was on the balcony at Manhattan venue Terminal 5 when Travis Scott began urging some fans to jump off into the crowd below. In a video from the show, the rapper can be heard asking fans standing precariously over the balcony, "Are you gon' do it?" and assuring them, "They gon' catch you, don't be scared."

Green says he was pushed forward by the surging crowd on the balcony and pushed over the edge. “I fell and hit the floor," Green remembered. "Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up...Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage. They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around.” Scott then presented him with a ring, Green said in his lawsuit.

He now lives in Dutchess County, New York with his family. Green's injuries included fractured vertebrae, a broken left wrist, and fractured right ankle. Despite undergoing surgery, he was left paralyzed on his left side and uses a wheelchair to get around.

A representative for Travis Scott was not immediately available for comment.
