Video: Riverboat Gamblers frontman punctures lung and breaks ribs after crowd fails to catch his “trust fall”

Mike Wiebe, singer of the Texas native punk band Riverboat Gamblers, attempted a “trust fall” at the band’s recent SXSW performance. Unfortunately things didn’t work out (seriously no one caught him). Wiebe suffered from broken ribs and a collapsed lung. This of course didn’t stop the singer. He finished the rest of the set before making a trip to the hospital. All future shows have been cancelled but the band will resume playing once the singer is healed.

A video of the incident can be seen below.
