Marilyn Manson has been crushed by a falling prop at his New York City concert.
The 48-year-old rock star was in the middle of singing Sweet Dreams when the props, described by witnesses as giant pistols, fell.
He had just begun climbing on to them in the middle of his performance when they began to give way and “toppled” on top of him, witnesses said.
Several people rushed on to the stage but it took a number of minutes before Manson was stretchered off stage.
Immediately after the incident, the concert venue went dark and the music stopped.

A representative for the musician has said that the next nine shows on Manson’s US tour will be cancelled while he recovers. The extent of the singer’s injuries is still unconfirmed.
