Nine Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus performers were among 11 people injured Sunday in Providence, Rhode Island, after an apparatus used in their act failed, sending them plummeting 20-40 feet to the ground, circus spokesman Stephen Payne said. Eight performers fell when the Medeiros Hair Hang Act apparatus failed. Another performer was injured on the ground, he said. "We thought that was a part of the performance," said audience member Sean Bergeron.
