Siegfried and Roy illusionist Roy Horn has been transferred from Las Vegas’ University Medical Center trauma unit to the UCLA Medical Center.
“This is the next step in the recovery process,” said the magicians’ spokesman, David Kirvin.
Kirvin declined to comment specifically on Horn’s condition. The illusionist was mauled onstage by a tiger during an Oct. 3 performance at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, where the duo has been performing since 1990. Horn was rushed to UMC after being bitten in the neck and reportedly suffered a stroke, among other complications, from the attack.
