Morbid question about Louis CK's statistical analysis of the crowd
at last year's Beacon Theater show.

So in the beginning of his show, he estimates that the crowd was about 2500 people, which was a sufficiently large group to serve as a statistical sample of the US population (roughly). He then goes on to say that, based on a sample of this size, it's fairly likely that 'within two months, at least one of you will die'.
SO! My question is - is it possible to find out if that was a valid prediction? News reports or the like? Googling hasn't turned up anything so far.
