COLLEGE STATION, Texas — An Aggie family is asking for the public's help after medical bills have left them in financial hardship.

Bharti Shahani, a 22-year-old senior at Texas A&M University, was said to have no brain activity Tuesday evening, according to her family. She remains on a ventilator in the ICU after Friday's fatal crowd surge at the Astroworld music festival.

"The doctors, they say the chances of survival are nothing," said her father, Sunny Shahani, to KTRK. "We keep saying we'll pray. I request all of Houston to pray for her. Maybe the prayers might work as a miracle for her."

The Shahani family has since launched a GoFundme.

"Our family remains by Bharti's side and are unable to work," said Namrata Shahani, Bharti's younger sister. "We are raising funds to help cover mounting expenses during this strenuous time."

"Bharti is the light of our lives and we are all praying for her full and speedy recovery."
