Enrique Iglesias -- Badly Injured in Drone Accident During Concert

Enrique Iglesias was seriously injured when he grabbed a drone that was buzzing during his concert.

It happened Saturday night in Tijuana, where Enrique was performing to a crowd of 12,000.  The drone is part of the concert.  He sometimes grabs it as it flies around, showing the audience his POV.

But this time he grabbed the wrong part, and the drone sliced into his hand.  He went to the side of the stage for help, and he was advised to pull the plug on the concert and get immediate medical attention. But Enrique went on for 30 minutes, with a blood-soaked t-shirt.

The singer was rushed to the airport where an ambulance was waiting to give him first aid.  He then flew to L.A. to meet with a specialist.

Brave new world.
