Recovering Horn visits Vegas Strip



Roy Horn made a rare public appearance on the Las Vegas Strip, signaling thumbs-up from his wheelchair at a Cuban revue he and partner Siegfried Fischbacher are producing.

"He stayed for the whole show and loved it," said Dave Kirvin, a spokesman for the illusionists. He added that Horn met with "Havana Night Club" cast members after the Tuesday night performance.

The 59-year-old entertainer suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed after a near-fatal mauling by a trained white tiger during a performance Oct. 3 at the Mirage hotel-casino. Horn returned to Las Vegas last weekend from Denver, where he spent two weeks at a rehabilitation center.
