British pop singer Charles Haddon dies in leap from telecommunications mast at Belgian concert

BRUSSELS (AP) — Police say the lead singer of a British pop trio climbed a telecommunications mast behind the main stage at a Belgian rock festival and leaped to his death in the parking lot below.

Police say 22-year-old Charles Haddon of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool died late Friday during the Pukkelpop festival in Hasselt, a town in eastern Belgium. Police say they are treating it as a suicide.

On Thursday, Michael Bean, frontman for the U.S. group The Call, died of an apparent heart attack at the same festival. The 60-year-old was working as the soundman for his son's band, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
