  • Circus acrobats injured when apparatus fails in Rhode Island

    At least nine Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus performers were injured Sunday in Providence, Rhode Island, after an apparatus used in their act failed, circus spokesman Stephen Payne said.

    Eight performers fell when the hair-hang apparatus -- which holds performers by their hair -- failed, Payne added. Another performer was injured on the ground, he said.

    Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare said the performers fell from between 25 to 35 feet.
