Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Shock rocker Marilyn Manson was hospitalized Saturday night after a stage prop fell on him during his Heaven Upside Down concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom.

"Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital," the singer's publicist told Rolling Stone magazine.

The New York Post quoted audience member Tim Jalbert as saying Manson was about halfway through his performance when he attempted to climb a large replica of two guns and a piece of the set fell on top of him.

"He was lying on the stage out cold. People were chanting: 'Manson! Manson!' The lights stayed down and they put up curtains around him as first responders worked on him," the witness said.

Manson was eventually transported to the hospital and the rest of his show was canceled.

The nature of his injuries and his current condition were unclear as of Sunday morning.
