This is the terrifying moment a singer suffered a huge electric shock live on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans.
Dominican artist Nolberto was midway through his band Alkala’s performance of Yo por tu amor (Me for your love) at a carnival in Ranchillos, Argentina, when he placed his hand on a metal pole.
Dramatic mobile phone footage shows him convulsing as the volts start to surge through his body, while smoke rises from his arms and he collapses off the stage.
With the audience screaming in terror, security guards rush to his unconscious side.
After several minutes, Nolberto regained consciousness and managed to return to the stage to continue the show.
‘Nothing like this has ever happened to me before,’ Nolberto later told Diario La Provincia.
‘What happened was that the stage was damp, and when I touched the metal I suffered the shock. So to stop myself from being shocked I had to throw myself off the stage.’
