Australian singer Nick Cave's 15-year-old son Arthur died on Tuesday night after falling off a cliff in Brighton, England.

"Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy, loving boy. We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time," Cave and his wife Susie Bick said, confirming their son's death in a statement to the press.

According to The Guardian, the teen was airlifted to the hospital, where he later died of his injuries, after he was found by walkers on a coastal path at the foot of the Ovingdean Gap, which is 60 feet below the clifftop.

According to Rolling Stone, Arthur and his twin brother Earl Cave both appeared in the 2014 musical docudrama "20,000 Days on Earth," which followed their father and his band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, over the course of a day.
