Unfortunately, famous singer Enrique Iglesias has suffered a severe injury at his hand. He actually sliced his hand during a concert in Mexico, while trying to grab a drone. The star will now have to undergo hand reconstructive surgery.
So, everything happened while Enrique was on stage, in Tijuana, Mexico. During the performance, the star tried to grab a drone that was used to take shots. However, while trying to do so, the star injured his fingers, injury that led to serious bleeding. Still, despite the accident, the singer wanted to continue the show, but was advised to stop the performance.
A rep for the star alleged that “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. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding. He was advised to stop the show.” Before that occurred, Enrique continued to perform for no less than 30 minutes.
However, a statement from the star’s rep claimed that the bleeding continued, so in those conditions, continuing the show was impossible. Immediately after ending the performance, Enrique was transported to the airport, where an ambulance met him and offered him the needed medical assistance. Enrique flew to Los Angeles to see a specialist and get the needed treatment right away.
The singer will undergo the surgery in Los Angeles and the star is expected to be once again on stage by the end of the week. “Enrique will resume his tour July 3rd in Mexico City. We appreciate all your wishes and prayers,” the singer’s rep said. “Thank you to all for your concern and good wishes. Enrique is currently undergoing reconstructive hand surgery today,” it added.
Enrique’s rep also claimed that they will keep fans informed on how the star is doing, so it is yet to see if the medical procedure has already taken place and if Enrique is fine now. Hopefully, the injuries are not very serious and Enrique will be fully recovered and on the stage in the next few days.
