Destra Garcia has suffered a broken ankle after falling through a stage while performing in Bermuda on Wednesday (August 2).
The Trinidadian soca artist was performing at the annual Cup Match Summer Splash Concert when the incident occurred.
Sources close to Garcia said that she fell off the stage and landed between the stage and the sub-woofers, due to bright lights in her face.
The artiste, also known as Lucy, had to be fitted with a neck brace and removed from the stage on a stretcher.
The “Just A little Bit” singer has reportedly been in a lot of pain following the accident.
