Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias is seeking treatment after a drone cut his hand during a Saturday concert. Iglesias continued the show with his hand blooded and bandaged. Pictures and video from the event show him smearing his blood on his T-shirt in the shape of a heart.
Enrique Iglesias said on his website:
Thank you to all the fans for your concern and good wishes. Enrique is getting the help he needs and we hope he will be totally fine. Will keep you posted and appreciate all your wishes and prayers
The accident happened in front of some 12,000 people in Tijuana, Mexico, as part of Iglesias’ “Sex and Love” world tour. He suffered the cut when he grabbed the drone used during shows to get crowd shots. Iglesias is known to grab the drone and turn it on himself and the audience to give a “point of view shot,”
