Variety reported that the dancer who was in a stable condition has been discharged from the hospital. On the other hand, health officials have been trying to get the family of the dancer critically injured to meet him bypassing the quarantine period mandatory for those arriving from overseas. Police said three audience members were also taken to the hospital, one who felt unwell and two others in a state of shock, but they required no medical treatment.

Concert comes to halt after the accident

The concert was halted after the incident, which occurred during Mirror’s fourth of 12 scheduled concerts at Hong Kong Coliseum. At Tuesday’s concert, band member Frankie Lui appeared to lose his footing and fall off the edge of the stage while giving a speech, according to clips on social media. An online petition about safety issues of Mirror concerts was launched the same night and has garnered thousands of signatures. The petition urged organizers to ensure safety for Mirror and its dancers and refrain from using unnecessary stage mechanisms or raised platforms.
