Australian DJ Adam Sky bleeds to death after smashing through a glass door while racing to help a woman in Bali
The 42-year-old died after a freak accident while holidaying at a luxury resort in Bali; law enforcement confirmed there was alcohol involved in the incident
A well known Melbourne DJ has died while trying to rush to the aid of his injured female colleague during a holiday in Bali.
Adam Neat, 42, popular by his DJ moniker Adam Sky, was on vacation at a luxury Bali resort south of Kuta on Saturday, Daily Mail reports. It came to light that his friend Zoia Lukiantceva fell four meters from their private pool area and broke her leg at the Hillstone Villas Resort. The Singapore based DJ reportedly rushed to her aid and while doing so smashed into a glass door and possibly severed a major artery. He was found “lifeless and lying in a pool of blood” at the resort, south of Kuta, around 10 am on Saturday, reports Nine News.
Law enforcement confirmed there was alcohol involved in the incident.
The DJ's official Facebook page shared a post on Sunday night: "It is with great regret that we can confirm Adam Neat was involved in a fatal accident while trying to help a friend who had suffered multiple fractures in Bali on Saturday 4th May. Relatives and friends of Adam are traveling to Bali today and handling all arrangements. We ask you to respect the families privacy at this moment while we all come to terms with our tragic loss."
Sky was reportedly ranked as the third most popular DJ in Asia after having more tracks charted in the Top 100 or Top 10 than any other producer DJ in the continent. Sky was a "rising Aussie superstar DJ", per JUICE Magazine Asia, and played alongside the likes of David Guetta, Fat Boy Slim, and Ministry of Sound.
Scores of fans expressed their shock at the tragic news on social media.
"Devastated - amazing talent, amazing person, always willing to help. Sad sad day. Thoughts out to Marvie and family members," one wrote. While another commented: "Truly lovable bloke and an exceptional talent . Will be missed by many friends, industry players and the audiences he entertained."
Sky's father Gary Neat, an Australian businessman and former ABC journalist, is reportedly on his way to Bali to get his son's body home.
