Last night, Shock Rocker Marilyn Manson was rushed to hospital after being injured by a falling stage prop. His NYC concert was brought to an abrupt halt after witnesses report part of the stage prop collapsed on top of him.
TMZ reports that Manson was reportedly about an hour into his show at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom — performing his hit “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” — when the stage prop fell on top of him.
Witnesses say it took several minutes for emergency workers to get Manson out from under the props, and he was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. No word yet on the rock star’s injuries.
The remainder of the show was obviously cancelled. Fans attending the event have been sharing reactions and accounts of the accident (and videos, which we have chosen not to post here.)
