In September, Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke Hernandez was involved in an incident where she was knocked to the floor by stage-invader, before the fan was dragged away by security.

The group were performing at the Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey when the gig was interrupted.

Footage showed the fan rushing Brooke and grabbing her before being halted and pulled away by a bouncer as she fell the floor. Brooke was visibly shaken by the incident, but quickly resumed her performance and addressed the rest of the band.
