"What an bad experience!" wrote Peter Sehl about the events that unfolded. "10 mins into the show, Criss Angel was doing his upside down straitjacket stunt and was nearly out after spinning for 2 mins and then they let him down". The newspaper reported that before he was forced to undergo surgery on his shoulder, "he had performed more than 2,100 shows over five years without canceling a performance". "Didn't appreciated peoples comments as they were leaving".
"He is grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from his fans around the world", the rep said in a statement. The Friday evening incident caused Angel and son Johnny Crisstopher to miss an event for the Make-A-Wish foundation, but his intended $100,000 donation was made in his absence.
This isn't the first time that particular stunt has resulted in injury for the star. Peter Sehl posted to the official Mindfreak Facebook page. It was announced that the audience would break for five minutes. "Awesome return Criss!" wrote one audience member.
Criss Angel has reportedly left the ER after his recent stunt gone wrong, USA TODAY confirms. During rehearsal for his then-upcoming show, The Supernaturalists, Angel's costar, Spencer Horsman, became trapped inside a box filled with water that hovered several dozens of feet above the stage.
On Saturday, Chris Angel was released from a hospital in Las Vegas after he passed out while attempting a straitjacket escape just ten minutes into his Mindfreak Live! show.
