Our thoughts are with Nick Cave and his family today: his teenage son, Arthur, passed away after falling off a cliff in Ovingdean near Brighton, England.
At 6 p.m last night, the 15 year old’s body was found on the underpass at the Ovingdean Gap, NME reports. The Argus, a Brighton newspaper, reported that people tried to carry out first aid before he was taken to Brighton’s Royal Sussex County Hospital. Unfortunately, his injuries were fatal.
The Argus released this statement from Nick Cave and his wife, Susie Bick: “Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy loving boy.”
Best wishes to the Cave family.
