UPDATED 8:50 p.m. ET: A spokesperson for Travis Scott confirmed the rapper and his team have contacted the injured fan and his family to express their concern. The team is receiving updates on the individual's condition while they investigate the matter.
"The safety of everyone is held in the highest regard and we are currently conducting an internal investigation to ensure that this does not happen again," the representative told Complex via email. "We are deeply concerned about the guest who was injured and intend to offer him our support."
A source close to Travis told Complex the artist had engaged with the crowd earlier that night, instructing audience members to create a "safety net" for people jumping off the second-floor balcony. No one was reportedly hurt during the initial jumps, but after the fan who leaped from the third level was injured, Travis is said to have stopped the show so the individual could receive medical treatment. The source said the team is trying to determine if the fan jumped or was pushed.

"I'm seeing , like, real reactions and it's crazy. You know, I've always been on those tours, The Weeknd and Rihanna. It's kinda like a mix of fans. So, when I finally did my own tour, it's finally seeing these kids fuck with me. It's kind of dope."
