Various reports have suggested that it took several minutes for emergency services to get Manson on a stretcher after the large prop was removed, and he was then taken to hospital. Reps for Manson would not reveal the extent of his injuries or how serious his condition is, however they told Metro.co.uk that ‘Manson suffered an injury towards the end of an incredible NYC show.
Michelle Curran was at the show and revealed that he was ‘probably half way through singing Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics’ when the display fell. ‘The massive gun display of two pistols behind him toppled on to him,’ she told the DailyMail.com. ‘The singing stopped and loads of people ran on to the stage to lift to it up.’
