Neck Deep‘s merchandise manager, Derek Buell, has been hospitalised following an incident last night where he apparently fell about 40 feet (roughly 12 metres) from a balcony at SXSW.
The accident reportedly left him in a critical condition overnight, however, he is now “in a stable condition” according to his father via a post on social media:
“My son Derek fell last night at South by Southwest in Austin TX. He is in University Medical Center Brackenridge with fractures of the skull, face and vertebrae, He is in a stable condition. Please send Positive Vibes his way [sic].”
Buell has also worked as a merchandising mangaer (it’s exactly what it sounds like – he manages their merch) with A Day To Remember, Pierce The Veil, and others.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
