Los Angeles: Heavy metal and rock singer Marilyn Manson has described his onstage accident as a “terrifying” experience.
The 48-year-old singer was injured by a large stage prop at his Hammerstein Ballroom concert on September 30.
After Manson tried to hold up the podium, it fell upon him. His band, Heaven Upside Down, kept playing for about 45 minutes until they noticed the singer was not getting up.
Speaking about the accident, the rocker said he feared it could even have crushed his skull and ribs.
“I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster.
“I wasn’t trying to climb it. It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time. I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating,” he told Yahoo Music.
Manson, who still has his leg in a cast, said he recently watched the video of the onstage disaster.
“I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly,” he said.
