Danish Baig, 27, of Euless, Texas, was one of the eight people who died at the Astroworld Festival in Houston on Friday, November 5.

Baig, whose family is from Karachi, Pakistan, died while saving his fiancée. Baig worked as a district manager at AT&T, according to his Facebook, and drove from Dallas to Houston to attend the concert.

“They were chanting to stop the event. Nobody stopped the event,” Basil Baig, Danish’s brother, said in an interview with ABC News. “This is not how you handle things. This is not how you do it. You go to a concert to have fun. You don’t go to a concert to die.”
