Othello Smith, of Providence, and his family left the building shortly after the accident because they didn’t want their young children watching the aftermath. “One of the performers was crying,” he said. “It looked pretty bad.”
Smith said the performers were doing an aerial act, where they were spinning on ropes or cables.
“They just dropped,” he said. “It happened so fast you didn’t really believe it happened.” source
There was no immediate word on the extent of their injuries. Several fire department rescue units were on the scene.
The circus performances were suspended after the accident.
