Justin Bieber had to cancel his German TV appearance because the contestant of the Show is seriously injured in a stunt that went all wrong.
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber was forced to cancel a German TV appearance on Saturday after a stunt went horribly wrong.
Bieber was booked to appear on Saturday night on popular German game show Wetten Dass, but was forced to cancel his appearance after a contestant suffered serious head injuries during a stunt.
According to an Associated Press report, Samuel Koch, 23, suffered multiple back injuries and fractures after he attempted to jump over a moving vehicle that was being driven by his father.
The contestant was wearing special suspension shoes, but came a cropper and landed face-down on the floor in front of the horrified audience.
Bieber later took to Twitter to explain, “An accident has taken place and we all don’t think it is right to continue. Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety.”
He added, “Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety…Some things are more important than putting on a show. We will be back, I promise.”
Koch suffered multiple fractures and back injuries, and underwent surgery in Duesseldorf on Sunday. Doctors describe his condition as “extremely critical” but no longer life threatening, reports The Sun.
