A stagehand for the Coachella Music and Arts Festival Saturday at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron confirmed that authorities received a call about an accident at the concert grounds. “Upon arrival, they discovered a worker at the concert staging area who had had a fall and had passed away. We responded to assist. It was an industrial accident,” Guitron said in a statement. The worker’s identity has yet to be disclosed to the public.
