A dancer by the name of Delly Madrid was knocked unconscious during a live broadcast on Peruvian television when she fell face first onto the ground during a dance routine.
Delly Madrid, who is also a model, fell while attempting to balance on a bamboo pole held up by two other dancers.
The pole snapped in two, sending the gorgeous 32-year-old Delly Madrid crashing to the floor.
The music stopped, and Madrid can be seen clutching her head, as other dancers surrounded her, calling for paramedics.
Production staff on the live dancing programme El Grand Show can be seen running on to the set to attend to Madrid.
The broadcast was eventually cancelled after a replay of the incident was played to viewers.
“I do not know what to say, you have seen it,” said the show’s host, Gisela Valcarcel. “There’s no more dancing. What we want is to go out to be next to Delly.”
Luckily, despite the very hard fall, Madrid only suffered some bruising and swelling.
Miss Madrid appeared on Peruvian television following the fall, wearing a neck brace. She was thankful that she did not suffer worse injuries.
“I could be paralyzed, quadriplegic, or [have] died on the spot,” she said.
