Enrique Iglesias’ Hand Got Sliced By a Drone During a Show
If 2014 taught us anything about drones, it’s that flying robots and music don’t always mix well. Last year Cali punk band Trash Talk made headlines when their bassist threw a beer at a drone, sending it spiraling down into the crowd. Luckily no one was hurt but it served as a reminder that using a drone to film a show can be more of a risk than worthwhile.
Unfortunately Enrique Iglesias didn’t get the memo.
Over the weekend, Iglesias played a drone-filmed gig in Tijuana, Mexico. All was going well until the pop star reached out to grab it in attempt to take a selfie of himself. Iglesias accidentally grabbed one of the blades instead of the drone’s body and sliced his hand on stage. It was a bloody mess, as you can see by Iglesias’ splattered t-shirt. Pic shows quite a bit of blood, but you can see it here.
Iglesias soldiered on though, after having his hand temporarily bandaged up mid-set.
