Ok so... He was attacked by a mirror! haha! I was the understudy that was mentioned in the magic article. We found him behind the curtain laying in a puddle of blood with a huge gash on his head. We rushed him to the ER to tend to his wound. Dave is back to normal... Well... Yeah... haha!

Davo wanna fill the boys in on what happened?

Ok sooo one of the dancers wanted me to post her first hand experience that night. here it goes!

Here's the scoop! I'm Tina, a close friend of Dave, Jamie & Wade and a dancer in the Dave Womach Magic Show here in Saipan...
the dreadful night went like this..
Dave appears at the back of the theater at the end of the show to greet people, but this time he had blood pouring down his face like a scene out of "Carrie" I kid you not! Of course I had to keep dancing, thinking it was some kind of sick joke, looking at Wade in the audience like "is this real, right now?"
After we walk off for bows I see Dave laying unconscious on the ground with a pool of blood around his head..some dude just standing over him like, "huh?" I of course flipped, Since no one had informed me of what to do in case of an emergency I didn't know where the nearest phone was, or that you had to dial a "9" to get out! So I'm running around yelling for someone to call 911, I see Jamie then Wade like, "he's passed out over there!" So we grabbed some paper towels and held it on his head until help arrived....
Since Jamie & Wade had already made there way to the hospital I went with Dave in the ambulance..which was SHOCKING in itself because they had like a row of neck-braces hanging above his head but didn't put one on him??? I was like "excuse me, but shouldn't he have one of those on?"
The dude was like, "he split his head open, his neck is okay."
I WAS IN SHOCK!! Then I was like "Dave are you okay?"
His response was unsure, I remember it was pretty hot in there..I asked the driver to turn on the air and he was like "it's just up the road"..Once again SHOCKING!!!

On the way to the hospital, Dave's head was bouncing around due to the lack of a neck-brace, I'd see him stiffen up his legs over bumps as if to reduce his head from more movement. When we got to the emergency room I walk in and see his wife Jamie in tears of course! Me and Wade chilled out in the waiting room with updates from Jamie every few minutes..
I was pretty shocked when Jamie came in and was like, they're ****ed off Dave can't do second show!!!
HELLLLOOOOOO everyone should just be happy Dave is still alive at this point!
At the end of the night Dave was okay, but it's a night I'll NEVER forget!

The next couple nights when it came time for Dave to appear at the back of the theater, I couldn't help but feel a bit sick with this mental image of him burned in my brain of him holding his parrot smiling, blood dripping down his face, remembering that dreadful night! Thank God Dave is okay and doing well now. That's the update from Saipan.

Yeah Dave is a trooper as he told me you know stuff happen. He is back in full swing. Glad to see that he is back at it and he has always had the support of his friends and peers.

A strong climax with a puddle of blood (behind the curtain) is better then a subtrunk and a 1000s of bruises after a few performances...Hope you are better soon...

Yours

Dave called me after the accident and told me he slammed his head into a piece of steel while exiting the MDM illusion. He called me a day after the accident and was in great spirit but had a heck of a head ache. He didn't elaborate to me where the steel was that he hit. I will fill in more when I get more. B
If your not having fun doing what your doing....dont do it!

Are you sure this ins't a bunch of hype for the launching of his new parakeet items?

Just kidding!!! Dave is the man!!! I wish him a speedy recovery and continued success on his Saipan show!

-Bryan

P.S.- Rumor has it, if you want to send your "Get Well" cards, Dave and Jamie are hurting for some "Smart Food's- White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn" over there in Saipan...
