Concert performer Tana Cantrell told CNN the accident happened about an hour into her performance.

“At that point, from my angle, it looked like he fell on the stage, clutching the middle of his chest,” Cantrell said. “You could see in his face and body how much pain he was in and that’s when I knew it was serious. His legs were shaking from the pain.’

“You could see from other angles that there was a hole in the stage when they dropped the guitar and they didn’t put the floor in time,” Cantrell added.

After about 10 minutes, Post Malone got up with the help of others, and went to take a break, Cantrell said. Once he returned to the stage, he repeatedly apologized before the show ended, Cantrell said.

“I really don’t know an artist like him,” the Instagram post continued.

“We just got back from the hospital, and everything is fine,” Post Malone said in the video. “They gave me some pain meds and everything so I could keep kicking ass on tour.”
