Singer Jimmy Buffett was hospitalized after falling off stage while performing in Australia. The entertainer was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney.
During an encore set at the end of the night, Buffett tumbled into an open gap in the front row at the Hordern Pavillion. The accident occurred when a huge flash of light was splashed across the stage – essentially ending the performance. It blinded Buffett – causing him to take a misstep.
An audience member who was close to the accident said that Jimmy was unconscious for 5-10 minutes and suffered a large gash on his head after doing a massive face plant following his encore.
A rep for the hospital said that the musician is in stable condition and will remain hospitalized for observation.
