Ou Est Le Swimming Pool singer Commits Suicide
« on: August 23, 2010, 08:07:33 PM »
A MUSICIAN "feared he had a crippled fan" during a stage-dive that went wrong just hours before he committed suicide.
Charles Haddon, lead singer of British band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, jumped off a satellite mast after a performance at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium on Friday.

The tragedy is now being linked to an incident where a young girl was seriously injured after the singer suddenly dived into the audience during the bandís performance.

Haddon, 22, reportedly feared he may have crippled the girl for life and was heard saying: "I hope she pulls through. I hope she will be able to walk."

Investigators are now reviewing video of Haddon emerging from backstage after the gig following the incident they say sparked a "near riot".

Witness Jens Borms said the stage-dive caught people off-guard .
"As people were completely surprised by this, they jumped away instead of catching him. Apparently one girl couldn't get away and was severely injured in the back," he said.

Another eyewitness said: "I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt anyone. The look in his eyes when he stood up and they pulled the girl from the ground was very scary."

According to Belgian newspaper De Standaard, Haddon then had a "furious argument" with his fellow band members.

Hours latest, his body was found in the carpark below the mast.

The injured girl is now in hospital with serious injuries to one leg and four vertebrae but is expected to make a full recovery.

A statement released by the band read: "We are all so deeply saddened to confirm that our friend Charlie Haddon passed away yesterday, Friday 20 August.

"The singer had just performed with his band, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. He was 22 years old.

"Charles Alexander Haddon R.I.P Thanks for all your messages of support. x."

The London three-piece was due to play at the Parklife Festival in Australia next month.

Their debut album "Christ Died For Our Synths" was set to be released in October

even though its electro music and they look like fags, that song was catchy, im sure it will be used in a skate/park montage soon or has been, kinda sad he took his life over something like this without knowing the girl was going to be fine.

And that song is real catchy, if you like cocks in your ass.

maybe he really planned on jumping into what he thought was a swimming pool, as a refresher. then mid-air he realised he was diving into raw ground and he shouted "Ou Est Le Swimming Pool".

harsh, regardless.
i think the self-clap should be more socially acceptable

It wasn't really a stage dive, he was just trying to get away from the music.

meh, at least the girl is going to be ok, and his band can become timless and will peak at this point and can't go on to put out album after album of even shittier music.

Lesson: Do not stage dive at an electro pop show, the crowd just can't handle it.

I like this.  A lot.
