Circus Performers Injured


At least eight Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus performers are hospitalized with serious injuries due to an accident at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.  The acrobats fell 25 to 40 feet around noon yesterday.  At least over a dozen other people were treated for injuries.  A metal apparatus holding the performers collapsed causing the accident.  The cause is under investigation and OSHA has been called in to help with the investigation. Help is available for anyone in need of counseling after seeing the circus accident that injured several performers at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.  The Disaster Distress Hotline is 800-985-5990. The hotline is operated by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
