David Copperfield said on Wednesday that he did not know until he was sued that the British tourist was seriously injured taking part in the show during the Las Vegas Strip performance in 2013.
Although Copperfield said that it could be his fault if a volunteer from the audience who participated in the Novemer was injured, the famous magician did not accept responsibility for the injuries that Gavin Cox, he claims, received when he fell.
“It depends on what happened. If I did something wrong, it would be my fault, “Copperfield said during the interrogation of Cox’s lawyer Benedict Morelli.
According to the rules, David Copperfield, or rather his team is selected by 13 random people from the audience for each of their shows. The selected lucky ones become part of the program of the famous illusionist master: in the process of carrying out the trick, 13 people must disappear from the cell hanging high above the stage. Later all of them again appear in the auditorium.
However, for Gavin Cox everything turned out differently. During the transition to a secret (for the rest of the audience) passage, he stumbled and fell. As a result, according to the unfortunate tourist, doctors diagnosed his brain injury and shoulder dislocation.
