Nine people were hurt in a freak accident during a circus performance Sunday in Providence, Rhode Island. The acrobats with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus were performing a series of stunts while hanging by their hair, when the apparatus holding them gave way.  All eight of the performers fell 20 feet to the ground, landing on top of another dancer. One of the performers is in critical condition. All are expected to recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with the women and their families.
