2 acrobats suffer spinal injuries in circus accident

Circus acts have intrigued individuals throughout the nation since their creation. While many of the acts are awe inspiring, for many spectators, those involving acrobats are particularly thrilling. Recent circus spectators received a bigger thrill than they likely expected when a carabiner fastener failed sending acrobats performing in a “human chandelier” act to the floor, 20 feet below. A total of nine individuals were injured in the incident, eight acrobats and one person on the ground below. After the acrobats fell, the frame that supported them fell upon them. It weighed 350 pounds.
