This is the worst.

Pedro Aunion Monroy, a 42-year-old acrobat from Brighton, United Kingdom, fell more than 100 feet to his death on Friday night during a Green Day performance at the Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Spain.

Worse still, the accident — which took place high above the stage in an illuminated cage in the middle of a tribute to Prince — was caught on video by fans there for the show.

The video itself fortunately doesn’t show the immediate impact or aftermath, but it’s nevertheless incredibly jarring and should only be viewed with caution by those who can handle what they’re about to see (below):

So, so awful.

Monroy was a director of a performing arts company in Brighton, in addition to his work in performances like these.

In another jarring move after Monroy’s death, Green Day took the stage and performed less than a half hour later — because they were never informed that there was an accident or a death on the stage just minutes before.

WTF?! Who is running this festival??

Our thoughts and prayers are with Monroy’s family, friends, and loved ones. Clearly, so are the thoughts and prayers from Green Day, once they were finally informed of what happened (below):

Such a sad reminder of tragedy and mortality at what should have been such a fun festival.

R.I.P., Pedro Aunion Monroy.
