Enrique Iglesias Drone Injury Worse than Expected


Enrique Iglesias’ spokesperson has announced that the singer’s hand injuries are worse than expected.

Enrique Iglesias, 40, sliced his fingers open when he tried to grab a drone camera, which was taking pictures of the audience, at a concert on May 30.

Following reconstructive surgery on June 1, it was announced the singer would need several weeks to recover.

A statement on Enrique Iglesias’ website said: “The damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed.

“He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery.

“He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated.”Enrique Iglesias drone injury 2015

Enrique Iglesias was performing in Tijuana, Mexico when he reached for the drone, apparently in an attempt to give fans a point-of-view shot from the stage.

The singer was “semi-treated” at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding, and was advised to end the show.

However, Enrique Iglesias performed for another 30 minutes before seeking further treatment.

A representative for the singer said on Instagram: “He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him.

“He was then put on a plane to LA… to see a specialist.”

Enrique Iglesias, one of the highest-selling Latin musicians of all time, shifting more than 137 million albums worldwide, is expected to resume his tour on July 3 in Mexico City.
