Criss Angel Passes Out During Straitjacket Trick, Rushed to Hospital

"What an very bad experience!" 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. Sehl wrote, "He stopped moving, curtain down". Break for 15 mins. Now show canceled... Hope he is ok! "Didn't appreciated peoples comments as they were leaving". He was discharged a few hours later.

A number of attendees at the show took to social media to relate what they witnessed onstage at the Luxor, including this account on Facebook.

After the illusionist lost consciousness, he "was evaluated and released early this morning".

The site reports that he "appeared unconscious" and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Angel performs the show at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas.

Court upholds impeachment of South Korea President over scandal
As Park Geun-hye steps out of Blue House ~ the presidential palace ~ she bequeaths a direly depleted legacy to the next occupant. Acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn, a Park loyalist, has instructed the people of South Korea to remain calm and accept the ruling .

"He is grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from his fans around the world", the rep said in a statement. Angel also had to cancel a fundraiser appearance on Saturday, for Make-a-Wish of Southern Nevada, according to the statement, instead sending a donation of $100,000 "on behalf of his pediatric cancer nonprofit HELP".

This isn't the first time that particular stunt has resulted in injury for the star.

Criss Angel has reportedly left the ER after his recent stunt gone wrong, USA TODAY confirms. Cast members then brought a stool on stage, untied Angel, and rushed him offstage. The incident occurred just minutes into the show.

In 2013, Angel severely injured his shoulder and bicep while performing a similar stunt in Times Square in New York City. The accident forced him to go into a 10-week hiatus from his show, Believe.

In the act, Angel is supposed to escape from a straitjacket while hanging upside down.
