VIRAL NOW: 9 Performers Fall During Circus Act

Posted May 5th, 2014 @ 8:04am

Nine acrobats and two other people were injured in an accident yesterday at a Ringling Brothers show in Providence, Rhode Island.  It happened during a stunt called "human chandelier," where a bunch of female acrobats get suspended by their hair and lifted up about 30 feet.  Apparently a cable snapped.

Most of the performers suffered broken bones.  But one was in critical condition as of last night.  (It happens at :41.  WARNING:  Someone in the crowd says the S-word at :42.)
