Update on Fan’s Recovery After Serious Spinal Injury from Stage Dive Incident

Spine Injury

During a music event at Mohawk Place in Buffalo, New York, a 24-year-old attendee, Bird Piché, sustained a severe spinal cord injury due to stage diving by John Floreani, the lead singer of the Australian pop-punk band Trophy Eyes. The incident, which occurred on April 30, prompted the immediate shutdown of the concert and led to extensive surgical intervention for Piché.

Local Buffalo media reported on the show’s abrupt conclusion and the subsequent accident, which resulted in life-threatening injuries for the fan. Video documentation of the event was shared on various online platforms, though it does not capture the full extent or immediate aftermath of Piché’s injury. Floreani immediately followed the injured fan to the hospital, a move that was acknowledged and detailed in a statement released by the band.

Trophy Eyes, acknowledging the gravity of the situation and in concert with the wishes of the injured fan’s family, communicated their sadness and support through social media channels. They provided a status update on Piché’s health, stating she has started the recovery process but faces a challenging road ahead.

To assist with medical bills and the long-term rehabilitation that will follow, a GoFundMe campaign was established for Piché, with an aim to raise $100,000. Trophy Eyes contributed financially, and donations have since flowed in, drawing both community support and wide media attention.
