Claude was at his apartment with an American girlfriend named Kathleen and a French secretary. In the afternoon he took a shower in preparation for a trip to the recording studio. After finishing his shower he noticed that the light bulb in the socket hanging over the shower was burned out. With his feet in the water he reached up to change it and was instantly electrocuted. Efforts to revive him failed. He was pronounced dead at 3:30pm. (11 March 1978)
