    Nick Cave's Son Dies After Tragic Cliff Fall
    By Ed Biggs in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 15 July 2015

    Nick Cave

    Arthur Cave, 15, tragically died soon after falling from a 60ft cliff near Brighton on Tuesday.

    Rock singer Nick Cave’s teenage son has died in hospital after falling from the top of chalk cliffs near Brighton.

    15 year old Arthur Cave was airlifted to Royal Sussex county hospital on Tuesday (July 14th) after walkers found him with life-threatening injuries at around 6pm at the foot of a 60ft. drop below the Ovingdean Gap. Those who found him attempted to administer first aid and quickly rang for emergency services.

    However, he died of his injuries later that evening. Cave and his wife Susie released a short public statement on Wednesday paying tribute to Arthur, who leaves behind his twin brother Earl. It read: “Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy, loving boy. We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time.”

    The circumstances of the accident are not being viewed as suspicious. A spokesperson for Sussex Police released a statement saying: “A 15 year old boy who was found with life-threatening injuries on the underpass of Ovingdean Gap, having fallen from the cliff above, has sadly died in hospital on Tuesday. He later died there of his injuries. The death is being dealt with by the coroner’s office.”

    Arthur’s year 10 schoolmates assembled at the scene of the accident to leave floral and written tributes, which Cave and his wife are believed to have seen and read. The Guardian reports that they briefly attended the scene on Wednesday, speaking with their son’s friends.

    57 year old Cave is best known as the lead singer of the critically acclaimed Australian alternative rock group Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, which has released 15 albums since forming in 1983. He was also a part of The Birthday Party before that, and released two albums as Grinderman in 2007 and 2010.

    Very sad. But all these people dying by falling off of cliffs. Just stay the fuck away from the edge, you know what's at the bottom and you know it's easy to fall off one.

    Don't know the name, but losing a 15 yr old kid to an accident like that is fucking terrible. Even worse that it was a twin. Went to HS with a cool set of twin dudes. One died in a motorcycle accident a few years back.

    I hear when they found him, he had a red right hand.

    Too soon? Yeah, I guess so, but this is the internet. It's a fast world.

    It was the cliff's fault.

    (Just ask those who blame cops for shooting non-compliant perps.)

    Seriously though, terrible tragedy.

    Amen to this. While in Norway visiting relatives, we hiked to this spot (Pulpit Rock). Could not believe how people were sitting on the edge with their legs dangling...
