85-Foot Trapeze Fall Becomes Viral VideoBy: Chris Crum - April 19, 2013
A video from the Associated Press featuring a circus acrobat surviving an 85-foot fall is gaining viral steam, as more and more blogs are showing it.
The fall apparently happened last month at a circus in Moscow. He hit the safety net, which was waiting directly below the stunt, but unfortunately he fell right through it. Somehow, he still managed to live. He reportedly suffered a fractured vertebra.
According to the AP’s YouTube description for the video, the Kenyan trapeze artist is healing and is expected to turn to work.
