Magician got shot in the dead with a crossbow as trick goes disastrously wrong.
In a rather unfortunate event, a magician got himself shot in the head with a crossbow during a live performance. The incident occurred whilst he was performing the act at the National Arts Festival in South Africa on Sunday.
Better known by his alias name 'One Crazy China', Li Lau was delivering his performance alongside fellow magician Brendon Peel when he got shot at the festival in Makhanda.
During the "Carnival Sideshow and Other Magical Things", Peel was apparently holding the crossbow while his fellow magic partner was performing an escape.
The magician shared a video with the fans where he said, "We just had a little minor incident this afternoon, but I am all well, we just took precautionary measures. “We would never put ourselves at harm or any potential risk."
"So thank you for your support I am 100 per cent and the show is going to go on."
Meanwhile, fellow illusionist Brendon Peel too issued a statement on his Facebook page where he apologized for scaring everyone with their deadly act.
"We assure everyone that Li is absolutely fine and we are more than happy to come chat to any of the kids in the audience," said Peel.
"We as performers are always mainly concerned about our audience and we would never in a million years wish to put our audiences (both young and old) in any discomfort whatsoever."
