Enrique Iglesias' drone injury worse than thought
Enrique Iglesias' hand injury is "worse" than first thought.
The 'Hero' hitmaker sliced his fingers open after he caught a drone flying midair at his concert in Mexico,Tijuana, on Saturday (30.05.15) and reconstructive surgery carried out earlier this week took longer than anticipated as it emerged during the operation that he had also fractured one of his digits.
A posting on Enrique's Instagram page yesterday (02.06.15) read: "We wanted to give you a personal update about his condition. His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since 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."
Despite the injury being worse than first thought, the 'Tired Of Being Lonely' singer is still expected to make a "full recovery".
The post added: "He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated."
Following the accident, Enrique's representative confirmed the singer had defied medical advice and continued the show after something "went wrong".
The spokesperson, Joe Bonilla, said on Instagram: "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. He was semi-treated by crew on the side of the stage to try and stop the bleeding. He was advised to stop the show.He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show."
The 40-year-old star is scheduled to resume his 'Love and Sex' world tour on 3 July in Mexico City.
