Enrique Iglesias was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after an accident during his Saturday night’s performance in Mexico.

The 40-year-old singer is recovering from cuts to his hands and fingers after the camera-drone he was holding chopped at his fingers.
He was covered in blood but continued his performance to the delight of his fans.
Fans close to the stage who witnessed the incident were shocked by the amount of blood they saw.

Enrique had the time not only to finish his performance but to draw a perfect heart on his white T-shirt with his bloodied hand.

The People reports:

Iglesias, 40, was performing for more than 12,000 people at a bullfighting ring in Tijuana, Mexico, when the accident occurred.

“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,” a rep for the singer said in a statement. “Something went wrong and he had an accident.”

Iglesias was briefly treated on the side of the stage and advised to end the show, which is part of his Sex and Love world tour.

But Iglesias chose to perform for 30 more minutes, as his hand continued to bleed, according to photos posted on social media from the audience. Afterward Iglesias was “rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there,” the singer’s rep said. “He was then put on a plane to LA to see a specialist.”
