Minutes later he asked a section of the crowd if they could see him and after realizing they could not, he jumped literally into the middle of the duck pond and drops his mic into the water due to it being too wet and ruined. He is then literally surrounded by the fans as they run into the water with him as his bodyguard Pascal is spotted running to his side along with the Armenian National Guard and Police all getting soaking wet to retrieve the rap star. Kanye was then brought closer as a fan tried to touch his hand, the cops pushed him and Kanye reacted to holding the cops back to let the fan get a photo with him in the pond too!
