Origin NYE Rafter-Fall Video Surfaces Online

Written by Greg Moskovitch on January 2, 2014

An unidentified man has narrowly escaped potentially fatal injury following a fall from the stage rafters at Perth’s Origin NYE festival on Tuesday night, with footage of the stage invader’s fall now surfacing online. The man was spotted climbing the rafters during rapper A$AP Rocky’s set.

Two videos, one filmed from onstage by Wiz Khalifa’s tour DJ, DJ Bonics, and another shot by a festival punter in the front row depict A$AP Rocky reclining against a stage piece as he addresses the crowd, when he notices the man dangling high-up by one arm from the scaffolding.

“Oh shit kid, come on, man, be careful… Somebody help this kid before he kills himself,” Rocky is heard saying into the microphone moments before the man falls to the ground in front of the crowd control barricade. Security and medical staff are then seen immediately attending to the man.

In the fan footage, Rocky can be seen jumping off stage to check on the man, who appears conscious, before returning to the stage to finish his set. The man’s injuries are reported to be “serious but not life threatening,” with organisers expressing frustration with the man’s actions.
