This is so sad and extremely scary. During the Mad Cool Music Festival in Madrid, Spain an acrobat that was performing right before Green Day hit the stage fell to his death.
The acrobat’s name was Pedro Aunion Monroy from Brighton, UK. He was high up in the sky doing a tribute to Prince in an illuminated box 100 feet in the air when something went terribly wrong and he fell out. The footage was caught on tape and you can hear the people in the crowd gasp in shock. According to TMZ, Green Day is catching some heat for hitting the stage less than 30 minutes after the accident but they issued a statement saying they didn’t know about Pedro’s death until after their set.
Pedro was 42.
