A 30-year-old man who was beaten in the mosh pit at the Family Values show at Atlanta's Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater on Sunday night is hospitalized and on life support after being declared brain dead. According to Atlanta's WSB-TV, 30-year-old Andy Richardson is in critical condition following the fight, during which two unidentified men attacked him in the mosh pit after Richardson asked the men to be careful not to hurt his pregnant girlfriend and a mentally challenged child they had with them.
"Can you imagine your child goes to a concert and be killed for it, because of people out there fighting to have a quote unquote good time?" Richardson's mom, Gloria told the station. "And I'm angry. I'm very angry. Why were the police not there to stop them?"
A friend of Richardson's who attended the Korn-headlined show with him, Edgar Arellano, said the fight broke out after Richardson asked the men to be careful, but it ended soon after that and the men left the area. "We were all enjoying the concert, we were having a good time, until these two guys came around," Arellano said, adding that the men showed up again and one of them punched Richardson in the head, knocking him head first onto the concrete.
"He was unconscious. He had blood all over his face when I picked him up," Arellano said.
WSB-TV reported that homicide investigators are looking into the beating, but have only a vague description of the suspects. A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department could not be reached for comment at press time. A spokesperson for the amphitheater could not be reached for comment.
Richardson's mother said her son is brain dead and on life support and is not expected to live.
