It was 10 years ago that Roy Horn of the celebrated duo Siegfried and Roy stood on the Las Vegas stage. Suddenly, he was no longer standing.
Instead, he was being hauled off the stage in the mouth of a white tiger named Montecore.
While many assumed at the time that his death was a foregone conclusion, especially considering he went "code blue" three times that night and 25 percent of skull had to be removed, Horn lived to tell his story.
But how is he doing a decade after that horrific accident?

For the first time since he was mauled onstage by a tiger, illusionist Roy Horn performed with the same animal that nearly ended his life more than five years ago in Las Vegas.
The performance Saturday at the Keep Memory Alive charity benefit was also the last time the legendary duo of Siegfried & Roy plan on performing together.
"Within all of us there is an elusive melody which, when heard and followed, will lead you to the fulfillment of your wildest dreams," he was heard saying in a recorded message to the crowd at Las Vegas's Bellagio.
