Covid-19 complications

Former star magician and animal trainer Roy Horn died on Friday at the age of 75 in a Las Vegas, Nevada hospital, complications from his coronavirus infection. The sad news was given by his long-time partner Siegfried Fischbacher (80) in a statement that quoted, among other things, “The Hollywood Reporter” .

“Today the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” said Siegfried. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I would change the world together. There would be no Siegfried without Roy and no Roy without Siegfried. Roy has been a fighter all his life, even in those last days. I express my sincere appreciation to the team of doctors, nurses and staff at Mountain View Hospital who have heroically fought against the insidious virus that ultimately killed Roy. ”

At the end of April, Roy Horn had tested positive for the corona virus and had to be taken to the hospital. “Roy had a high fever and had difficulty breathing,” Siegfried described the symptoms to the “Bild” newspaper at the time.

The situation was made even more difficult by this: “When the paramedics picked him up, he pleaded: ‘Siegfried, please don’t let me go to the hospital,'” Siegfried recalled the dramatic situation. “Roy said: ‘I’ll never get out of there. You have to promise to prevent this. ‘”He couldn’t give in to this request. “I feel so helpless,” said Siegfried. “I can’t go to him, can’t help him.”

The German entertainers Siegfried Fischbacher and Uwe Ludwig Horn, as he was born, became world-famous as a German-American magician duo Siegfried & Roy due to their magic shows and tamer art. However, one of her appearances made a sad story: In 2003 Horn was seriously injured by the white tiger Montecore during a performance on his 59th birthday in her adopted home Las Vegas and has been partially paralyzed since then.
