Durst Branded “A Fraud”
Jessica, aged 16, suffered a heart attack when the 55,000 strong crowd surged to the front of the stage during Limp Bizkit’s performance at Sydney RAS Showgrounds.
The young lady was apparently “clinically dead” when she was pulled out of the mosh by security guards, and only managed to regain consciousness after having air pumped into her lungs as well as an adrenaline shot to the heart from paramedics backstage. She was immediately rushed to Sydney’s Concorde Hospital where she later died.
Reports in the Australian press said that the inquest “saw footage of Durst telling a reporter for American TV show Access Hollywood that he ‘visited the girl in hospital” and that he has kept in touch with her parents”.
However, the Sydney Daily Telegraph reports that according to the police officer leading the investigation into the tragedy, Detective Inspector Gregory Bamford, says Durst “made no such trip to Jessica’s bedside”.
