A broad excited state was observed in <sup>6</sup>He with energy E-x = 5 +/- 1 MeV and width Gamma = 3 +/- 1 MeV, following the reaction <sup>7</sup>Li(gamma ,p)<sup>6</sup>He. The state is consistent with a number of broad resonances predicted by recent cluster model calculations. The well-established reaction mechanism, combined with a simple and transparent analysis procedure confers considerable validity to this observation.
