Indie rock drummer Jerry Fuchs dies in elevator accident

Drummer Jerry Fuchs has been killed in a freak accident in which he plunged to his death in an elevator shaft.


The 34-year-old musician was attending a fundraiser in Brooklyn, New York to benefit The Uniform Project, which raises money for children living in India's slum neighbourhoods.

He was travelling in a freight elevator with an unnamed male guest when it stopped a few feet above the fifth floor.

Fuchs and the other man opened the door and attempted to jump out, but while the other man landed safely, the star's clothing got caught and he fell five stories.

The rocker, who played for the indie rock bands !!!, Juan MacLean and, most recently, Maserati, was found by his friends and later died at New York's Bellevue hospital.

His friend, Alex Frankel, tells the New York Post, "We found him in the elevator shaft. He was no longer able to speak."

Fuchs' mother, Joy, paid tribute to her son, adding: "He touched lives. His gift for music touched many lives."

It has happened to me before, right across from the acc. The worst part is that me and my buddy just blazed and, i guess we smelled so when the guys came and let us out they had thought we boxed the elevator while we were waiting.
