When he fell to the festival in the Netherlands, Paul van Dyk was seriously wounded three years ago and had to go back to life. The court has now awarded him millions of damages.
Almost three years ago, Paul van Dyk (47) was in the hospital, unable to talk or walk. At the "State of Trance" festival in Utrecht (Netherlands) the star DJ dropped to the stage six meters into a hole. The result is double spine fracture and traumatic brain injury. Because the neurological center of the Netherlands is located in Utrecht, it can be immediately treated with van Dyck.
After the first shock, the musician sued the ALDA Events event for damages – a lawsuit in the US gave him right now. The organizer is obliged to pay Van Dyck about CHF 12.56 million. They should apply to medical invoices and unpaid fees due to breaks related to the disease.
The hole on the stage was covered with cloth only
That the court ruled in favor of van Dyko, no wonder. The death hole on the stage was covered with a canvas, and none of the ALDA events showed it to the DJ.
Today, German can sing again and be on stage. But the journey was long. Brain bleeding could even lead to not knowing his wife, mother, or even himself. The DJ still has the pain every day, as he said in the picture. From a psychological point of view, it was also not easy: "If you do not know if you can ever walk again, if you as a musician no longer know if you still have a spark of creativity, then these are the things that characterize you."
