Commenting on the death of a 15-year-old girl who was crushed in a crowd surge at their Sydney, Australia, concert last Friday and died from her injuries Wednesday, Florida-based hip-hoppers Limp Bizkit said in a statement released Thursday, "We are devastated that Jessica died and really nothing can describe the sadness and anguish we're feeling . . . We offer sympathy, prayers and compassion to her family and friends. The loss of her life will impact ours forever." The last name of the victim, as well as other personal statistics, have not been released, though news reports say that the teen suffered cardiac arrest when she was shoved against the stage during the Grammy nominees' headline performance at the annual Big Day Out music festival Down Under. Six others were treated for injuries.
