I find it absurd that noone would have tried to break this guys fall.
I read that club had a big stage diving scene. So the mosh crowd wouldn't have lacked practice catching people flying off the stage, but the guy was travelling head first. Maybe someone suddenly found this head and elbows hurtling at them and freaked out?
