Nine Ringling Brothers Acrobats Were Injured When a Cable Broke [Video]


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
