Enrique Iglesias is recovering after some of his fingers were sliced when he grabbed a drone during a concert in Tijuana, Mexico at the Bull Fight Ring (Plaza de Toros de Playas). Now, I don’t really feel like it should be stated, being so obvious, but never try to catch a drone by its rotors.
A representative for the singer said in a statement to The Associated Press that Iglesias was “semi-treated” after the accident at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding on Saturday night. He was advised to end the show but went on to perform for an additional 30 minutes.
“During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident,” the statement read. “He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show.”
I am very impressed that he continued with the concert, even when it was advised against. I think this shows he is a world class performer, albeit maybe not the smartest one.
A lot of phone footage was captured, and I’ve included a two interesting photos and two interesting videos.
