Not even a hospitalization can stop Criss Angel from performing.

The 49-year-old magician was rushed to the hospital on Friday night after he lost consciousness in front of his audience at his MindFreak Live! Show in Las Vegas. It occurred during a stunt that involves him escaping from a straitjacket in less than 30 seconds while hanging upside-down in the air.

On Saturday night, he returned and stunned his audience by successfully completing the stunt.

Audience members tweeted about their amazement after the show.

"In hospital from last night's show, @CrissAngel played sold out show tonight & 10 minutes in, proves he is a bad mofo. Awesome return Criss!" wrote one audience member.  

Another fan said the show exceeded their expectations and Angel appeared to be “fully recovered and killing it!”

Audience member, Ryan Perez, shared with Entertainment Tonight the moment he realized something went wrong during the stunt.

"So, he's wiggling. He's turning super-fast in midair trying to get out of it and about when there was five seconds left, suddenly he just stops wiggling. He's still going in a circle because he had been doing that before but he just kind of went limp," Perez explained.

"The timer then reached zero and there was a bunch of confusion as to what was happening and he was lowered down to the stage," Perez continued. "Then the crew and cast from the show got a stole and they untied him and brought him off stage. Then the house lights came up it was announced there was going to be an intermission. It was just dead silent."
