Nick Cave's son on LSD when he had fatal fall

Nick Cave's 15-year-old son had taken LSD before he fell to his death.

The 58-year-old musician learned at an inquest held at Woodvale Crematorium in Brighton, East Sussex, England that Arthur Cave had the hallucinogenic drug - known as Lysergic acid diethylamide - in his system when he plunged 18 metres down Ovingdean Gap in Brighton on July 14, according to a report by MailOnline.

The youngster - who has a twin, Earl - was rushed to the Royal Sussex County Hospital with a fractured skull, broken legs and bleeding on the brain after he was discovered by motorists in slow-moving traffic.
