A cause of death for the 10 victims that died as a result of the Astroworld Festival tragedy has been determined. 

The Harris County Medical Examiner’s office ruled all victims died of “compression asphyxia.” Of the 10 victims, only one, Danish Baig, 27, had a “contributory cause” due to the “combined toxic effects of cocaine, methamphetamine and ethanol,” the report states, according to ABC affiliate KTRK.

In addition to Baig, the remaining identified victims were Rodolfo “Rudy” Peña, 23, Madison Dubiski, 23, Franco Patiño, 21, Jacob Jurinek, 20, John Hilgert, 14, Axel Acosta, 21, Brianna Rodriguez, 16, Bharti Shahan, 22, and Ezra Blount, nine.

All the deaths were ruled accidental.
