Report: Nick Cave’s teenage son Arthur dies after falling from a cliff in England

Arthur Cave, the 15-year-old son of rock legend Nick Cave, has reportedly died after falling off a cliff near the English seaside resort city of Brighton.

“Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening,” reads a statement from Nick and Susie Cave, via the BBC. “He was our beautiful, happy loving boy. We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time.”

Here are details, from the NME:

Arthur Cave, 15, was identified by Sussex Police after a body was found at 6pm last night (July 14). The Argus reports that he was found on the underpass of Ovingdean Gap.

Members of the public reportedly carried out first aid on the teenager before he was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he died of his injuries.

The death is now being handled by the coroner’s officer and is not being treated as suspicious. Friends reportedly gathered to pay tribute to Arthur at the nearby Ovingdean Undercliff Cafe.

The teenager is one of Cave’s two sons with wife Susie Bick. He and his brother, Earl, both appeared in Cave’s 2014 biopic 20,000 Days On Earth.
