Statement Regarding March 10 Incident at Mindfreak LIVE

“Criss Angel routinely performs some of the world’s most dangerous illusions and escapes live on stage. During Friday evening’s performance, while attempting his famed upside down straitjacket escape while suspended by his feet, he lost consciousness. He was lowered to the stage and rushed to the hospital where he was evaluated and released early this morning. He is undergoing additional testing today and while it is not yet certain, it is his hope to return to the stage in his hit show MINDFREAK LIVE at Luxor Las Vegas tonight. He is grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from his fans around the world.

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. In his absence, a representative of HELP, the non?profit Criss created to find a cure for pediatric cancer, presented Make?A?Wish with a $100,000 donation.”

UPDATE: Criss Angel is in good condition, and will continue his performances of Mindfreak LIVE tonight.
