MASHANTUCKET — Criss Angel’s rescue of an escape artist trapped in a glass cage filled with water was no illusion.

Angel and Spencer Horsman were rehearsing for opening night of “The Supernaturalists” at an eastern Connecticut casino when Horsman became trapped in the cage dangling above the stage and Angel went 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 the opening night show was rescheduled from Thursday to Friday because the safety of the cast and crew is the priority.
