Something went wrong during a rehearsal for the Criss Angel show at Foxwoods on Wednesday night and video captured the harrowing ordeal as a performer was trapped in a water-filled box.
Alex Belfield, of CelebrityRadio.biz, posted the video on YouTube. He also shared the story on his website. The video is a CelebrityRadio.biz Exclusive.
Las Vegas Sun reports that an “escapologist” was unconscious and trapped in a glass cage during a water escape act until Criss Angel pulled him to safety.
Following the incident, the opening night of the “Supernaturalists” was postponed until tonight to ensure the safety of the cast and crew, the Criss Angel Facebook page says.
“Safety is always paramount #MagicRevolution,” a post on Criss Angel’s Facebook says.
“Following Wednesday evening’s rehearsal for Criss Angel’s production of The SUPERNATURALISTS, the show’s opening night performances have been moved to Friday June 26th. We assure everyone that the continued safety of the cast and crew is the paramount priority for Criss Angel and the Foxwoods team. Criss Angel has executive produced shows for decades, and we look forward to ensuring a fun, safe and entertaining experience for the artists and audience alike,” Foxwoods said in a statement.
