Last night, May 5, there was a terrible Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus accident in Rhode Island.During the performance a cable broke and a bunch of performers fell to the ground.  One is in critical condition, the others have broken bones.

This is a video from someone in the audience and it is somewhat disturbing because you see them fall.  You can hear a woman talking about the snacks she just purchased as if to distract the children.
