Techno Parade, an EDM festival in north-eastern Paris,took place this past Saturday, September 19. Unfortunately, tragedy stuck during the festival’s 17th edition, as a man reportedly died after falling from a famous Parisian statue.

Apparently Techno Parade’s organizers did not know of the accident until after the festival had ended. With nearly 350,000 attendees, people were climbing to high places to avoid the crowded streets and get a better view.

Graphic footage of the disturbing accident has emerged, showing the man climbing the monument along side others. Civil Protection volunteers were present at the festival to assist sick and injured attendees. It has also been reported that these volunteers helped with the fall victim’s ambulance evacuation.
