Death at Swell Season Concert

And we thought the fall from the cliffs in Lyons in 2009 was tragic, imagine how traumatic this was for Hansard. Why must people be such musical fanatics that they put their lives in danger?

SF Weekly now calls it a deliberate suicide:

A very sad event. I read that a friend had no idea that the person had an intention to suicide.

That’s horrible and sad. I can’t help but think how I watched the concert at Folks Fest with my 10 year old grandson.
It must have been very traumatic for everyone who witnessed it.
