While viewers were watching the drama on stage for “The X Factor,” an accident caused drama behind the scenes as well.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that a runaway stair riser backstage became unhinged and injured three stagehands just when 50 Cent was about to perform. The article then states that paramedics arrived within minutes to the scene to treat the injured staffers right off the stage. According to the article, two of the stagehands were hit in the head while the last hurt the elbow.
One of the injured crew members was heard telling his supervisor, “I’m fine!” before uttering “on the f–king last night of the show!”
