Jimmy Buffet Rushed to Hospital

UPDATE: After Falling Off Stage

One minute he was strumming and singing. The next he was unconscious, reports
Jimmy Buffett, 64, had just finished crooning, "It's been a lovely cruise, I'm sorry it's ended," when he fell off the stage at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Australia, Tuesday night and was rushed to hospital with a head injury.

He is in stable condition at St. Vincent's Hospital, reports

Officials at the concert at the Hordern Pavilion asked audience members to leave the auditorium as Buffett stayed on the floor in front of the first row of seating waiting for paramedics and an ambulance to arrive.

An audience member told the Daily Telegraph of Sydney that it appeared Buffett struck his head and was bleeding.

Another audience member in the front row told TMZ that Buffett was unconscious for five to 10 minutes and that he had a gash on his head. Paramedics arrived 15 minutes later.
