An acrobat named Gabby Souza fell over 30 feet while performing in front of a stunned crowd at Circus Rio. She was doing a trick on an aerial hoop when she slipped and slammed down onto the stage. Incredibly, she survived the accident with only a few minor injuries.
That wasn't the only dangerous accident involving the circus that has happened recently. When one of the trainers lost control of a tiger while it was being transported, the animal freely roamed a busy street. According to reports, the tiger was soon captured.
