Three women attending the concert, aged 16, 21 and 40, were treated for shock while one was sent to the hospital.
Mo dislocated the third and fourth sections of his cervical vertebrae, leaving him unable to move.
After an overnight procedure and another eight-hour surgery, doctors were able to stabilize the dancer. Potential paralysis from the neck down will depend on his recovery process and whether his damaged nerves grow back.
