“All Hong Kong Mirror fans have been looking forward to Mirror’s first concert for a long time,” the petition read, “but the day before it started, we were shocked to hear that a dancer was injured and admitted to the hospital.”

It continued: “We now hope that the organizer will face up to the problem and ensure the safety of all performers (including Mirror’s 12 members and all dancers).”

Chan took to social media following the fall to show fans he was doing fine.

“Sorry for making everyone worried. I was too absorbed in my speech. I only scratched myself a bit. I’m a lucky man,” he wrote.
