Coldplay Fan Plunges 30 Feet to Death

A 27-year-old man walking home from a Coldplay concert in Anaheim, Calif., plunged 30 feet to his death after he tried to leap across a gap in a bridge spanning a riverbed.

Police say witnesses saw Guillermo Gomez, of Alhambra, try to jump across a 10-foot gap that separates the westbound and eastbound lanes of traffic and fall onto a bike path below.

Sgt. Rick Martinez says Gomez, who had attended last night's concert with a relative, died less than an hour later at the hospital.

He says the gap in the roadway was surrounded by 2-foot-high concrete barriers.
