2 acrobats fell onstage at Montreal’s Cirque du Soleil, cancelling Friday show

The artists suffered minor injuries, said Urgences-santé.

Cirque du Soleil’s Friday Echo show was interrupted when two acrobats were injured after they fell onstage mid-performance.

The performers were tended to by an emergency team and taken to hospital, where they were released after a few hours, according to Urgences-santé.

The artists will continue to be monitored by Echo’s medical team to determine when they will be able to resume their activities as per protocol, the company said.

Customers who purchased their tickets directly from Cirque du Soleil will be automatically credited. Cirque du Soleil confirmed that the performances on Saturday and Sunday will go ahead. .. Link to full length article at CBC
