MASHANTUCKET, Conn. (AP) - Criss Angel’s rescue of an escape artist trapped in a water-filled box was no illusion.

Angel and Spencer Horsman were rehearsing for opening night of the illusionist’s show at a Connecticut casino when Horsman became trapped in the box dangling above the stage and Angel came to his aid.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that Horsman is recovering from the Wednesday accident.

President and CEO Felix Rappaport of Foxwoods Resort Casino says in a statement that the show will go on.

Rappaport says opening night of “The Supernaturalists” was rescheduled from Thursday to Friday because the safety of the cast and crew is the priority.
