Acrobat seriously injured after 5-metre fall during circus show

MONTREAL — An acrobat has been seriously injured after falling about five metres during a circus performance in Montreal.

Ambulance workers who responded to the scene say the performer was unconscious after a major blow to the head and that the injury is life-threatening.

The fall occurred Tuesday night as the artist was perfoming on a pole during a show that is part of the city’s annual circus festival.

It is not clear what caused the fall.

The festival is confirming the incident in a post on its Facebook page and says its thoughts are with the injured performer.
