Miss May I ‘Deeply Shocked and Saddened’ by Fan’s Death at New York City Show
Following the tragic news that a fan died at Miss May I's show in New York on Saturday, May 3, the band has released a statement expressing their condolences and asking people to donate to his funeral fund.
As we reported, 21-year-old Alberto Scott died after an apparent stage dive in which no one caught him. He reportedly suffered a fatal head injury when he landed. Initially, Miss May I acknowledged that an incident took place at the show, but earlier today (May 5), the band released a lengthier statement expressing their sadness over the loss of Scott.
As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday night tragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are awaiting a full report from the New York Police Department. In the meantime, we'd ask that all your thoughts and prayers be with his family. We have been made aware of a webpage that is raising funds to help pay for his funeral costs. We will be making a contribution and we'd strongly urge others to do so- http://www.gofundme.com/8vjoqc
