A resurfaced clip shows Linkin Park stopping mid-set to urge attendees to pick up a man who had fallen in the mosh pit. You can see the clip here:

In the clip, Mike Shinoda told the band to 'hold up' before saying: "Yo! We got a little problem up here."

Chester Bennington then shouted: "Pick him up! Pick him up right now!" and points out into the crowd.

Mike said: "Everybody up... sorry you guys, we gotta look out for safety first, for real. Nobody gets hurt - that's number one.

"We'll play this s**t again. The whole s**t again, if you guys get up and you guys are alright. OK? Watch yourself."

The clip then focuses on Chester who told the crowd: "Hey, yo, man. We know we've been stressing all night about being cool - and this is the reason why. Let's go over it one more time - when someone falls, what do you do?"

The crowd chanted back: "Pick him up!" before Chester asks again: "If someone falls what do you do?" getting the same 'pick him up' response from gig goers.

The clip was shared on Reddit where users were quick to praise the band, including Chester who tragically died in 2017.

One person wrote: "Class act. Linkin Park fan forever."

A second person wrote: "Chester is such a beautiful human. The world is a little less bright without him. To this day, it's the only celebrity death to really hit me."

Someone else posted: "Breaking the fourth wall to connect humans-to-humans, reminding everyone to be excellent to each other. Always. No matter the level of tension, lift each other up and remember their bond in the shared love of music. Brought a tear to my eye, what a beautiful heart."

Chester took his own life on 20 July 2017 - following his tragic death his widow Talinda shared a video of Chester filmed just hours before his death in which he showed no indication of battling depression.

She shared the video on Twitter in September 2017 with the caption: "This is what depression looked like to us just 36 hrs b4 his death. He loved us SO much & we loved him. #f***depression #MakeChesterProud."
