The incident happened during the recording of the programme "3B Junior Stardust Shoji for TV Asahi" on January 28.

The 12-year-old band member was brought to a Tokyo hospital and is now recovering, reported Japan Today.

When inhaled, helium can alter a person's voice; It can turn high pitch and may even sound funny.

The singing group member suffered "air embolism". It is an instance where air bubbles get trapped in the blood vessels. The bubbles can block a tiny artery and can even cut off blood supply to certain parts of the body.

TV Asahi issued an apology to the family of the affected idol group member.
