Roy Horn has become the latest high-profile name to lose their life to the coronavirus.
Full story below…
The legendary magician succumbed to complications caused by COVID-19 on Friday (May 8th).
He was 75 and died just a week after being diagnosed with the virus.
A statement from his magic partner Siegfried Fischbacher read:
“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend. From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.
Roy was a fighter his whole life, including during these final days. I give my heartfelt appreciation to the team of doctors, nurses and staff at Mountain View Hospital who worked heroically against this insidious virus that ultimately took Roy’s life.”
Our thoughts are with his family.
