Enrique Iglesias will be your hero, baby. He will swat away that drone

At a show Saturday night in Tijuana, the singer apparently had enough of the drone flying over the crowd and stage, which was used to take photos. According to one Instagram post, he attempted to grab it and “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.”

Yep. Instead of canceling the show because his hand was sliced open and he was gushing blood, Iglesias continued playing for the massive crowd for another half-hour after getting bandaged, and got… really into that blood.

According to a statement to the Associated Press, after the show Iglesias “was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him there. He was then put on a plane to L.A. to see a specialist.”

Sleep well, Enrique fans. He is reportedly recovering.
