Arthur was found at the bottom of a 60 foot drop from the top of the chalk cliffs at Brighton, Sussex Police told NBC News. Members of the public attempted to give Arthur first aid after coming across him on the coastal path below the Ovingdean Gap, reported The Guardian.

Arthur was eventually rushed to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead from his injuries.

The coroner is investigating Arthur’s death, though it is not being treated as suspicious.

”Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy loving boy,” Nick Cave and his wife Susie Bick said in a statement. ”We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time.”

Nick Cave is best known as the frontman for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
