Musician Nick Cave and his wife, Susie, released a statement that their son, Arthur Cave, died after falling from the chalk cliffs at Brighton. The statement read, “Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy, loving boy. We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time.” The Guardian reports that Arthur was airlifted from Ovingdean Gap where he died in the hospital from his injuries. Arthur is also survived by his twin brother, Earl. He had recently finished the tenth grade, and starred as the villainous sidekick Borachio in his school's production of Much Ado About Nothing
