    I remember that night after the concert here in Indpls,In. Everyone was hanging out afterwards and T-roy and his buddies was playing and jumping around. We started talking to them asking questions etc. They had stopped for a min. started back and I kept telling them to stop jumping up there,because it was too high up. They were mainly dancing around and jumping up on that wall which is concrete. That accident really bothered me for awhile I’ll never forget that night.
