Last month, just before Halloween, emergency personnel responded to a call alerting them to an injury sustained by a man who is a sword swallowing performer. The injury itself and the events that lead to the injury were not initially reported. Police were sent to the scene in addition to medical first responders for fear that someone had been stabbed or attacked in some way with a sword. The reported details have not been clear, but a spokesperson for Six Flags has stated that the injury sustained by the sword swallowing performer was related to a previous injury or condition that is not related to Six Flags or the man’s sword swallowing performance. The severity or nature of the injuries has not been reported, including whether the man needed hospitalization or long-term care, such as physical therapy Bowie, MD patients rely on for injury recovery. Based on what has been reported, no patrons of Six Flags were injured in the incident and the sword swallowing performer has non sustained life-threatening injuries.
