Skitched 20110407 142540

Gary Darwin, a staple of Las Vegas underground magic scene is out of the hospital and back to doing what he does best after a scary medical emergency that saw his leg amputated.

According to Rick Lax’ story in Las Vegas Weekly,Darwin (a diabetic) stepped on a screw which led to a series of complications and ultimately the surgery. Darwin credits the strength of his community in helping his get back to normal.

“When Lance [Burton] heard I was in the hospital, he came over and slept on the floor beside me. All night long. He followed me to surgery. And when I got out, there were 20 magicians in my room to misdirect me from the pain.”

  • I know we were all wishing the best for Gary when we were at World Magic Seminar and I am glad that he is home.
