Enrique Iglesias sliced his fingers on a drone mid-concert on Saturday, and the singer has confirmed he will undergo reconstructive hand surgery to correct the damage.

Enrique Iglesias To Undergo Reconstructive Hand Surgery

The incident occurred during Iglesias’ show in Tijuana, Mexico, when, in front of 12,000 fans, the singer reached up to grab a camera drone that was filming the audience. The DJI Inspire 1 drone was reportedly one of Iglesias’ own, meant to record footage of the fans during the concert. The singer grabbed it hoping to give fans a nice point-of-view shot, but instead sliced open his hand.

“During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a point-of-view shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident,” said a rep for Iglesias in a statement.

The singer continued to sing as he started bleeding heavily from his left hand, completing the song before running backstage for some emergency treatment. Backstage, Iglesias wrapped up his wounds and then went right back out to finish his performance – giving fans another 30 minutes.

According to his publicist, Joe Bonilla, Iglesias completed the show before being whisked away to the airport “where an ambulance met him there” and then boarded a plane to Los Angeles to see a specialist.

On Monday, Bonilla announced that Iglesias would undergo reconstructive surgery. Iglesias, himself, has not yet addressed the injury publicly, but his publicist assured fans he would be back on the road in Mexico on July 3rd.
