Enrique Iglesias was recovering Sunday after some of his fingers were sliced when he grabbed a drone during a concert in Tijuana, Mexico.

A representative for the singer said in a statement to The Associated Press that Iglesias was ‘semi-treated’ after the accident at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding on Saturday night. He was advised to end the show but went on to perform for an additional 30 minutes.

‘During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some lights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident,’ the statement read.

‘He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show.’

‘He 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,’ the statement read.

Concertgoers at Plaza de Toros de Playas posted photos on social media of Iglesias, 40, with blood all over his white T-shirt.

The heartthrob was just 50 minutes into his preformance  – halfway through the song Escape – when the incident occured.

While the drone hovered just above him, he was jumping and clapping into its mounted camera, urging the audience to do the same.

He then reached up with his left hand and holds the drone before adjusting the camera with his right.

But when he did it a second time, his right hand got pulled into the blades and he suddenly tossed the drone to the ground like it was an animal that had just bitten him.
