A magician in the United Kingdom, ran off stage and went to a hospital after cutting his nose and losing a lot of blood during an onstage performance.

Phil Knoxville of Silbey, was trying to pull out a card from his nose in front of an audience at the Conservative Club.

A member of the audience said that he watched in horror as blood came rushing out of Knoxville’s nose. Knoxville looked uncomfortable as he was trying to pull a playing card from his nose.

As the blood was pouring out of his nose, everyone thought it was part of the act. Knoxville then told the audience that he has to go the hospital.

Even then, people laughed, thinking it was still part of his act as a magician. Before running off stage, Knoxville asked a woman if she wanted the blood covered card.

She politely declined. Knoxville’s agent James Barnes, said that all magic acts carry some degree of risk.
