LONDON, ENG. (THECOUNT) — Reports out of the United Kingdom Saturday are saying a fan, identified only as “Ali,” died as a result of falling while in the mosh pit area at a Bring Me The Horizon concert Friday night in Alexandra Palace in London, UK.
In a since-deleted tweet, Griffin Dickinson, vocalist of Shvpes, wrote:
“Last night at a BMTH show I saw a kid die. He was carried out by 3 dudes & paramedics tried to resuscitate him to no avail. Please please please look out for people around you.”
“Please please please look out for people around you. Don’t leave it up for someone else. If someone looks unwell, CHECK on them. In any situation, on a tube, at a gig, whatever. I feel like British ‘awkwardness’ gets in the way of helping people. Don’t be afraid to call an ambulance. Don’t act like it ain’t your business. ACT on it. Rest in peace to that dude. Thoughts are with his family [right now].” source
Tweets from friends and others at the scene have surfaced confirming the incident.

Thank you to those who got him out, thank you to the medics who tried to save him.
Ali was a good friend of mine. I was supposed to be with him & friends at BMTH show but something came up. Absolutely gutted. Rest easy Ali. Love & miss you.”
