Marilyn Manson knocked out by prop during NYC performance

Marilyn Manson has been rushed to hospital in New York City following an incident which saw a massive prop fall onto him during a performance.

The singer was about an hour into his set at Hammerstein Ballroom when the stage prop, which appeared to be made from heavy metal, toppled over.

According to the BBC, an eyewitness revealed that Marilyn laid on stage for up to 15 minutes before medical personnel carried him out on a stretcher.

The horrific moment was caught on video and uploaded to Twitter. In the footage we see members of the stage crew rush to help the injured performer.

A representative told Rolling Stone magazine: "Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital."

His condition is not currently known.

Marilyn was just three dates into his current tour and was due to perform in Boston on Monday night – though it is not yet known when the tour will resume.
