“I only recently watched the video of it,” Manson says 11 days after the accident, lying back on a couch in his living room with his leg in a cast. “I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me because the truss was not secured properly.”

What might have looked on video like Manson shaking or trying to ascend the prop was actually the performer’s desperate effort to prevent it from collapsing. “I wasn’t trying to climb it,” he says. “It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time. I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating.”
