Witold "Vitek" Kiełtyka (January 24, 1984 - November 2, 2007) was a Polish musician, the drummer and percussionist for the technical death metal band Decapitated, and younger brother of the musician Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka. He had been with the band ever since it was founded in 1996, when he was only twelve years of age. He also did work for the heavy metal bands Dies Irae and Panzer X. On October 27th 2007 he was involved in a serious bus accident in Russia which injured him and his Decapitated band-mate Adrian "Covan" Kowanek. Both spent time in hospital and while Covan is slowly recovering, Vitek's condition deteriorated and he died six days later on the 2nd November.
