What may have caused the 75-year-old to lose consciousness?
Tuesday night, Carlos Santana concluded his performance in Detroit, Michigan, with a startling occurrence that alarmed the audience.
In the middle of his performance at the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, the 75-year-old performer passed out on stage. He was quickly carried off stage on a stretcher, but he was also able to wave his fans goodbye.
Santana was seen sitting down in front of the drums just before he slumped backward in a video that has been making the rounds online. A number of staff members, including EMTs, immediately went to his help after that.
Dehydration and heat fatigue are what caused Santana to pass out and have the medical crisis. He was brought to a nearby hospital for further observation, and his representative reportedly stated that he is doing well, according to TMZ, which broke the news.
During the course of the video, you can also see a black tarp being brought out to cover him while medics worked on him. In a separate report published by FOX 2, the performance was subsequently canceled, and a plea was made over the speakers to the crowd for people to pray for him.
Santana, who has played 32 concerts since March 25th, recently gave his fans an update on his health and thanked them for their prayers and support.
“to one and all thank you for your precious prayers,” he wrote. “Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy forgot to eat and drink water so i dehydrated and passed out blessings and miracles to you all.”
