According to an audience member, Buffett was walking along the edge of the stage when an unexpected flash of light disoriented the singer, resulting in his tumble into the gap. Buffett was reportedly unconscious for five to 10 minutes and received a large gash on his head from striking a piece of metal.

The singer is said to be in stable condition and will remain in the hospital for observation.
