A WESTMORELAND, NY man fell at least twice on JULY 19th, the day he attended the K-ROCKATHON concert, hosted by GALAXY Alternative WKRL/SYRACUSE, in WEEDSPORT -- once at the concert and once after he and his friend arrived home, according to the friend. THE SYRACUSE POST-STANDARD reports exactly how and when JAMES M. CIERI, 20, received the head injury that would prove fatal a week later remains a mystery.
State police are investigating when and where CIERI suffered his injury. CIERI died SATURDAY at FAXTON-ST. LUKE'S HEALTHCARE in NEW HARTFORD after undergoing surgery to relieve pressure caused by swelling of his brain.
