Jimmy Buffett's

Frightening Fall

Caught on Tape

1/26/2011 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy Buffett plummeted off the stage in Australia last night and crashed HARD into the concrete floor -- and the devastating accident was all captured on tape ... and obtained by TMZ. 

videos
The footage shows Buffett casually strolling towards the front of the stage when he clearly misjudges the end ... and literally steps off the edge.

Moments after Buffett hit the ground, security rushed to the singer's aid.

As we first reported, Jimmy appeared to be knocked unconscious for 10-15 minutes after the fall -- and suffered a nasty gash on his head. Jimmy was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital in Sydney and is in stable condition.

UPDATE: According to Buffett's website he is "doing well and will be released tomorrow."

The Pirate was momentarily blinded by the light. Give him a break and pray that come Monday, it'll be alright. If not earlier.

Was at the concert and it was a brilliant night up to that shocking end. Thoughts are with you Jimmy.

As an aside how much would that video be worth? I have a similar one but didn't think of selling it.

First of all, it was a 6-foot drop not a three-foot drop. Secondly, he fell because the lighting guy eploded a bright flash of lights that blinded Buffett and made it impossible for him to see anything, including where he was on the stage. No jokes about being high, margaritas, etc. Anytime anyone is rendered unconscious for 15 minutes it's a serious situation. Stop being jerks this has nothing to do with age, liquor or drugs - it has to do with an inept lighting person and even though Buffett is in stable condition things could take a turn for the worse. Wish the an a speedy recovery and good health - don't act like infantile idiots. Shame on all of you.
