A 28-year-old heavy metal fan has died from his injuries following an ill-advised stage dive at a Suicidal Tendencies concert in Switzerland last week.
The unnamed fan jumped from the stage during the band’s January 22 set at the Persistence Tour gig at Solothurn’s Kulturfabrik Kofmehl venue, but appeared to be fine after hitting the ground — he was attended to by security staff and was seen walking around the venue afterwards.
Staff insisted he seek professional medical advice before heading home and he checked into a local hospital, where he suffered an epileptic seizure and died two days later.
Pipo Kofmehl, who runs the venue, tells Blabbermouth.net
, “This is a huge concern for us. The whole thing is very, very tragic.”
An investigation into the incident has been launched.
