Marilyn Manson Injured by Stage Prop in NYC

At first glance it looks like it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but if you look at his leg as the prop falls on top of Marilyn Manson you can see why he had to be carried off in a stretcher about an hour into his show in NYC last night.

The musician, 48, was hurt when two large prop guns held together with metal scaffolding toppled over during his show at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday.

Images from the scene suggest he attempted to climb up the guns before they crashed down on him. Reports from Twitter users say he lay on stage for up to 15 minutes before he was taken to hospital in a stretcher.

People are saying on twitter he has only broken his leg or fractured his ankle, but there’s no official news yet.

Here’s hoping for a quick recovery whatever the injury was.
