- Justin Bieber Cancels on Wetten Dass | Narcolepsy
Tears filled the audience of a German television show audience yesterday. No, it wasn’t because Justin Bieber took the stage. These tears were of shock and sadness as a stunt segment went terribly wrong during the show.
Samuel Koch performed before Bieber was supposed to take the stage on the live television show Wetten Dass. Koch was set to flip over a succession of cars, each longer than the last, using bungee stilts. After two successful attempts, Koch hit his head on the third car and face planted on the ground, motionless. Over 10 million viewers, as well as a live audience, waited in horror to see if Koch would stand up. Unfortunately, he did not. An ambulance rushed Koch to the hospital and we await the news of his condition.
Respectfully, the producers of the show decided to end the program then and Justin Bieber took to his Twitter to explain why he would not perform that day. He said, “An accident has taken place and we all don’t think it is right to continue. Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety.”
Video of the stunt was posted online minutes after it happened, but YouTube and other online video archives have been pulling the footage as soon as it is reported. We wish a speedy recovery to Koch and his entire family.
