Criss Angel Returns To Stage After Losing Consciousness During Show

"At the Criss Angel Show". Sehl wrote, "He stopped moving, curtain down".

Witnesses who were present at the performance claim that, around ten minutes into the show, Angel was performing his famed upside-down staightjacket escape when things went wrong. "Didn't appreciated people's comments as they were leaving". Angel had spun for two minutes in a straitjacket suspended above the stage, attempting to get free, but instead lost consciousness.

He is said to have been taken to a nearby hospital, but discharged the same night.

Criss Angel has had a problem with performing his straitjacket act before, referring to a shoulder injury the illusionist suffered in October 2013 while trying to perform "a similar routine above Times Square in NY".

"He is undergoing additional testing today and while it is not yet certain, it is his hope to return to the stage", the rep told People on Saturday. "Due to Friday's events, Criss and his son Johnny Crisstopher were unable to attend a previously scheduled appearance at a fundraiser for Make‐A‐Wish of Southern Nevada Saturday morning".

Angel hangs upside down while buckled into a double-straitjacketed harness for this trick, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Audience members posted tweets and Facebook updates referencing an incident during the show, saying the show had been canceled shortly after starting.

Still no official word from him on social media, or from his team about his condition now.

According to ticket reservations for the Luxor, "Mindfreak" is not canceled for Saturday and Criss Angel will perform.
