Singer Marilyn Manson crushed by prop during New York show

Rock star Marilyn Manson has been hospitalised after being crushed by giant pistol stage props at a concert in NY.

During a concert at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom, Manson was midway through singing Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics when a giant gun prop collapsed on top of him.

After the accident, several people rushed to help, but it took several minutes before he was stretchered off stage.

The accident is understood to have occurred during a set at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NY on Saturday night.

The show was cancelled after the incident, and it is unclear whether Manson will continue the remainder of his U.S. tour.

A rep for Manson told Rolling Stone that he suffered an injury and is being treated at a local hospital.

Following the incident, the venue lights went off, and attendees were asked to leave the premises, with some fans unclear about what had just occurred.

The audience watched in horror as what appeared to be a team of crew tried to break him out from under the prop.

His condition is not now known.

Manson's concert tour began this week.
