Here is some very sad news out of Switzerland as it has been reported that a fan has died from injuries sustained in a stage dive at a concert headlined by Suicidal Tendencies. The January 22, 2014 show was part of the Persistence Tour that also featured Terror, Strife and Evergreen Terrace. The newspaper Solothurner Zeitung reports that the 28-year-old fan apparently landed on the ground when he dove off the stage, according to a representative of the Kulturfabrik Kofmehl venue in Solothurn, Switzerland. “Unfortunately, crowd members failed to properly catch him and he fell to the ground,” says Pipo Kofmehl.
He adds: “A security guard responded immediately, helped the young man and our emergency unit reacted as well.” The fan apparently did get up and walk around after the stage dive, but the venue insisted he be taken to the hospital. Sadly, the concertgoer had an epileptic seizure and died two days later at the Bern University Hospital.
