Actor Darren Criss narrowly escaped serious injury after he was pulled off the stage by an overeager fan during a Glee tour concert last week (ends12Jun11).
The cast of the hit show is currently performing at venues across the U.S., and the tour stopped in Washington, D.C. on Thursday (09Jun11).
During a group performance at the city's Verizon Center, Criss bent down to shake the hand of a female fan in the crowd - but he was pulled off the stage by the gig-goer.
The star was uninjured in the fall and remained a true professional by dusting himself off and returning to the stage.
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit... if I ever see you on a stage... keep your wits about ya (sic).
"Btw (by the way) I'm lucky I didn't hit my head on the gate in front of this lady. Seriously close call... Like, please don't kill me. I'm nice."
