Shock, grief, and pain. That's how one woman attending a candlelight vigil for magician Roy Horn describes her feelings.

More than 200 people turned out to lend their support and prayers for the Siegfried and Roy performer who remains in critical condition after a tiger used in the act attacked him Friday on his 59th birthday.

One of those in attendance was a veteran acrobat with the show who says he heard a commotion and knew right away something bad had
happened. He calls it a nightmare.

MGM Mirage Resort CEO Bobby Baldwin says doctors told him that Horn, who is in critical condition, can move his hands and feet and also gave a thumbs-up sign.

Those who attended the vigil chanted, "We love you Roy!" and held their candles in the direction of his hospital room.
