"It was clear that this was not part of the show, we saw how the production people came to fix it and you could see that they were stressed," said one member of the audience. "After they rescued her, there was a sigh of relief and the show continued as usual."
The circus said in a statement that, during an aerial act, there was a technical malfunction in the lifting engine. The acrobat was rescued quickly and safely by the skilled staff and continued with the show unharmed. The circus thanked the audience members for their concern and said they look forward to seeing them at future shows.
The circus, which arrived in Israel about two weeks ago and showcases international performers and acrobats, is expected to continue its performances until the middle of next month.
