Criss Angel was performing in Vegas last night when something went very wrong in the middle of his show, and a mistake made in a straitjacket routine sent him to the hospital for treatment!
The illusionist was doing his Mindfreak! Live show at the Luxor Hotel in Sin City last night, when eyewitnesses reported to TMZ that ten minutes into the opening act, the show was stopped after Angel got seriously injured during a set.
Apparently, just a few minutes into the opening — as Angel was dangling upside down in the air inside a straitjacket and trying to escape — the illusionist completely passed out.
After about two minutes, show producers must have noticed, and he was immediately whisked down from his perch and the curtain closed quickly to keep him behind-the-scenes.
Witnesses say he looked unconscious while hanging there, which is a scary thought — and he was immediately ushered off to Spring Valley Hospital just a few miles off the Strip for treatment.
The good news: he was released just a few hours later, walking out of the hospital around 10:00 p.m. local time.
Still no official word from him on social media, or from his team about his condition now.
We obviously wish good things and a speedy recovery for the talented illusionist!!!!
